Anderson Intelligencer, Feb. 6, 1879, page 3:
Death of Rev. Jacob Burriss.
The readers of the INTELLIGENCER will regret to learn that Rev. Jacob Burriss, who has been ill for several months, died at his residence near Anderson on last Tuesday evening. Mr. Burriss was in his eighty-eighth year at the time of his death, and had always resided in this County, where he has a very large and influential family connection. Mr. Burriss was one of the oldest Baptist Ministers in the State, and has always manifested a very deep interest in the affairs of his denomination, always attending its associational meetings, and participating actively in its deliberations. Mr. Burriss was a very active and energetic man, which traits, combined with good judgment and prudence, enabled him to amass a large and valuable property. He has not been actively engaged in the ministry for a number of years, but as the leading member of the old Salem Church, he accomplished within the past few years a great work in the erection of a handsome and commodious brick house of worship, to which he contributed most liberally of his abundant means. He was a kind and benevolent neighbor, an amiable and pleasant companion, and a pious Christian. At this time we cannot present a full sketch of his life, which has extended through such a long period of eventful years. He was one of the connecting links between a generation which is now nearly extinct and our own time. By his death sorrow is carried to the hearts of hundreds of relatives and friends. The funeral services will take place this morning at eleven o'clock, at the residence of the deceased, and the remains will be interred in the family burying ground near by.
