Oswego Daily Times (Oswego, NY), 8 Dec 1897

Harvey J. Burdick, a miller of reputation and an old and representative citizen of this city, passed away at the family home, No. 259 West Third street, as the direct result of recent injuries. Mr. Burdick, while driving with a friend a week ago last Sunday, was thrown from his carriage. He sustained injuries about the back which confined him to his room. No great attention was paid to his injuries as every indication seemed, to the family, to point favorably for his speedy recovery. Yesterday he was unusually well and it was not until towards evening that signs of weakness appeared. He grew rapidly worse until about four o'clock this morning when death relieved his sufferings. The sad announcement of Mr. Burdick's death was received with general regret and sorrow by his many friends of years standing. He was a familiar figure on the streets and during his many years of residence in this city encircled about him numberless acquaintances. Harvey J. Burdick was a Canadian by birth his birthplace being Belleville, Ont. At the age of 15 years he crossed the border coming directly to this city where he has resided continuously. He entered the employ of Mollison & Hasting in Palmetto, now the Cumberland, mill. He learned the trade of miller and being a first class workman, he in time was graduated to the superintendency of the mill. The deceased remained with this firm until some fifteen years ago, when his wife died. The shock was too much for the bereaved husband and a severe sickness caused him to resign his position. About twelve years ago, he secured a position as millwright with Kingsford and Son, which place he held at the time of his death. He was a member of the Old Volunteer Firemen's Association. Three daughters, Mrs. C. T. Wilcox of Cleveland, Ohio, Mrs. James Otis and Miss Clara Burdick of this city survive, as does one son, Frank Burdick, of Chicago.
