Major Burd
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1825
Erie County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 20, 1876
New Albany
Floyd County
Indiana, USA

Mr. Major Burd, an old and well known citizen, died this morning at his residence in the upper part of town. Mr. Burd has lived here a number of years, and has always been a true and consistent friend, and honest citizen, and a good neighbor. He was for a number of years a constable in the county, and he has always been considered a good man. About a week ago, while working at Barmore's shipyard, at Jeffersonville, a crow bar which he was handling slipped and struck him across the bowels, occasioning a break in the entrails, which caused his death. As will be seen by the funeral notice elsewhere, he will be buried at 3 o'clock tomorrow. - New Albany Daily Ledger Standard 20 Sep 1876
