CANADICE NEWS: Correspondence of the Gazette

Mrs. Fidelia Burch, whose sickness has been noticed in the Gazette several times, died on the 18th inst. Mrs. Burch was the oldest person in town, being 92 years old, and up to a few weeks prior to her death she enjoyed very good health. She was a noble Christian woman, beloved by all her acquaintances. B.H. Burch of this town, Thomas Burch of Syracuse, Henry Burch of New York, Mrs. Libbie Stone of New York and Mrs. Laura Gibbs of Connecticut, lived to see their mother reach well towards the five score of earthly pilgrimage, and lovingly await the summons "come up higher." The funeral services were held from the Methodist church, where for more than half a century she worshipped, the Rev. Mr. Retan officiating.

OLD BUILDING GOES

One of the landmarks of Canadice is being torn down by George Blair. Many years ago the house was owned and occupied by Mrs. Fidelia Burch, known to the whole community as Grandma Burch. The house was built with a cellar kitchen which was constructed in the basement and where the family living rooms were located. In more recent years the Canadice Telephone Company owned and used it as a central office. It has been vacant for some time. Mr. Freed is the present owner.
