The lingering illness of Mrs. Chas. B. Burtis of Oaks Corner's was Peacefully ended by her death on Monday, April 24th. An invalid for nearly a year, she was prostrated by chronic Blight's disease in February, and it seemed that her life could be extended at longest only for a few days. Her two absent children, A. B. Burtis of Cleveland, O. and Mrs. Rev. C. P. Porter of Lodi, were summoned to her bedside where they remained for over nine weeks in her death. Mrs. Burtis was born in Wayne Co. in 1825. She was a daughter of Gains Granger and the youngest sister of Gen. Gordon Granger, in 1846 she married Chas. B. Burtis. Four of their seven children are now living, of whom Henry B. Burtis and Emma T. Burtis remain in the family home at Oaks Corners.
