Samuel J. Burlock, and old resident of Ipswich and Edmunds County, and a member of the General Winfield Scott Post, of Ipswich, died at his residence in this city, of old age, last Wednesday, April 13th, at the age of 80 years.

Mr. Burlock was born in New York City on the 18th day of March 1830. He enlisted into the service as a soldier in the Civil War, in August 1861, being a private in Company F, 8th Wisconsin Infantry and served valiantly until his honorable discharge in January, 1864. His member in the local post dates from April 1890, since which time he has been active in all the affairs pertaining thereto. Aside from J. E. Chase, he was the oldest member of the Ipswich Post.

The funeral was held at the Congregational Church on Friday and was under the direct charge of the G.A.R. Commander J.C. Day, with much feeling, performed the ritualistic rites and Reverend Evans preached a sermon full of touching references as to the rapidity with which the ranks of the noble supporters of the Union were being thinned and admonished each comrade to be equally as well prepared as the deceased.

The day was a severe one, but the loyalty of those who touched shoulders in 61-65, altho now bowed by the weight of years, required more than the elements to interfere with the proper recognition of love and respect at the death of a brother. No fraternal ties exist which have within them all the elements of love, honor and fidelity, as are shown among the grand, old men of the Grand Army of the Republic and as they gently laid in the grave the mortal remains of their dead comrade, enshrouded within the folds of that flag they love so well, and each tottering veteran turned his sorrowing face homeward, the bravery so often displayed upon the field of battle was again manifest, for each knew within his heart that the day was not far distant when again would sound the bugle calling still another to that last reward which is surely in store for those who suffered and bled that our flag and our country might be sustained.

The deceased leaves a widow, one son, Fred of Aberdeen and one daughter, Mrs. Charles Howell, of Ipswich.
