A Former Resident Dead
- Birdsey H. Burch died at his home at Wayland on Saturday. Mr. Burch came to this town from Connecticut with his parents at the age of eleven years and continued to reside here until two years ago, having passed about sixty-three years of his life here. Mr. Burch was a successful farmer, and a good business man. A strong Democrat, he had held every important office in a Republican town, including collector, commissioner of highways, justice of the peace, and supervisor. A generous, kind hearted man, a consistent member of the church here, a man of undoubted honesty, he will be missed by all. A widow and one son, Marcus B. Burch. of Dansville, survive him. The funeral was held from the Methodist church at Wayland on Tuesday.
