Obituary: Publication and date unknown, March 1889:
Mrs. Jane Burrill, age 80 years, died March 4th about one o'clock p.m. at the residence of her step-son, G. W. Burrill in Johnson township. Her death had been daily expected on account of her advanced age. The maiden name of deceased was Jane Shannon. She was a native of County Monohon [sic, Monaghan], Ireland, where her first husband died and whence she emigrated to America with one son leaving another behind. She settled in Philadelphia where she resided in one family for twenty years, removing to her brother in Grant county, Wis., in 1845. She was married to George Burrill in 1847. They soon after removed to Dubuque county, where they lived until 1884 when they came to Plymouth county. The funeral was held Wednesday at ten o'clock, the remains being interred in the Pleasant Valley cemetery. Mrs. Burrill was a devoted Christian, a kind and generous wife and mother. Her husband, two sons, two sisters and two brothers survive her.
