In our last issue brief mention was made of the death of the above well known and highly esteemed citizen, which occurred at the home of his son-in-law R. F. Delamar, in this city, last Tuesday morning.

Mr. Burch was born in Mississippi, July 19, 1821, and came to Pulaski County with his parents in 1822, and settled on the place now owned by his son, Postmaster W. E. Burch, near this city. He removed from this county to Floyd County in 1857, where he resided until 1862, when he returned to Pulaski, where he lived up until his death.

In 1842 Mr. Burch was married to Miss Mary Crutchfield, who died in 1852, and by whom two children were born to him. In 1856 he was married to Miss Mary Beard, of Floyd County, six children being born to him as the result of this union.

Mr. Burch united with the Methodist church when quite a young man and soon afterwards was licensed to preach. He never joined the conference though he served a number of churches and frequently filled the pulpit in the Methodist Church in this city during the pastors' absence.

Mr. Burch was clerk of the superior court for a number of years during the time Judge Pate was on the bench. He also held the office tax receiver and was a member of the city council when the cemetery in which his body now rests in peace was laid off. He was also a member of the Odd Fellows, knights of Pythias and Masonic fraternities, in which he always stood high and took an active part during his younger days.

Mr. Burch is survived by one brother, Mike Burch, of Waller, Texas; three sons, E. A. Burch and W. E. Burch, of this city, and Joe Burch, of Dibowl, Texas, and four daughters, Mrs. E. H. Handley, of Texas, Mrs. J. W. Bowyer, of Dublin, and Mrs J. W. Reynolds and Mrs R. F. DeLamar, of Hawkinsville, all of whom were with him during his last illness except Mrs. Handley.

The funeral services were held from the Methodist Church Wednesday morning at ten o'clock by the pastor, rev. E. R. McGehee, assisted by rev. Charles L. Greaves, of the Baptist Church. The stores closed for the funeral and a large crowd was present to pay a lat tribute to a man whom most everybody knew and loved for his goodness of heart and purity of character.
