Upon the death of his mother, he found a home in the family of an uncle, Mr. Blackleach, in Huntington, Ct., where he lived until he married Sarah Hubbell in 1802, and made a home of his own. From this home he took his wife and three young children to make a home in the forests of Pennsylvania.
In the year 1810 he along with his family and Abijah Hubbell with wife Sally and children, and Hezekiah Buckingham with his wife Ruth (Hubbell) and children left Huntington, Connecticut, to make homes for themselves in the "far west," which at that time was northeastern Pennsylvania.
They settled in Herrick, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania and Blackleach built his house on the bank of the western branch of the Lackawanna. The dwelling place consisted of one small room surrounded by logs piled around it with one door.
In 1816, Mr. Burritt gave up his claim by the Lackawanna and moved to Clifford township.
