OBITUARY
The Rochester Sentinel

Tuesday, January 21, 1936

George BURDGE, aged 27, Brookston, a former resident of Henry township, where his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer BURDGE now reside, was killed instantly at 2:38 p.m. Monday when a truck he was driving was struck by a Monon passenger train at a crossing near Brookston.

Since his graduation from the Akron High School in 1927 Mr. Burdge has worked for a farmer near Brookston, who also operated a truck in which he did custom hauling. It was while making a trip with the truck that Mr. Burdge met his death.

The deceased was born on a farm in White county near Monticello on June 24, 1908. When he was ten years of age his parents moved to a farm three and half miles southwest of Akron, where they now reside.

Survivors are the parents; brother, Harry BURDGE, Macy, and a sister, Miss Martha BURDGE at home. The Moyer ambulace went to Brookston Monday afternoon and returned the body to the home of the parents.

The funeral services will be held from the Methodist Church in Akron at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. They will be in charge of Rev. J. S. STEVENSON, who will be assisted by Rev. Daniel L. SLAYBAUGH. Interment will be made in the Odd Fellows Cemetery west of Akron.
