He will be mist in his community as a neighbor and friend. (Poem) - Mr. Burford expired after an illness of 7 months, during which time he suffered more than one could tell. He never united with any church but told several during his sickness he was ready and prepared to die and seemed ready when the time came. He always took his share in helping one in need and spent many laboring hours to help a needy friend. He spent his entire life on the farm and was prosperous. Part of the farm on which he lived was at one time part of his father's estate. He was always an ardent Republcian and was one of the active members of the party. Funeral services were conducted at his home Sept 3 by Re.v TB Kelsey, formerly of marhsall and Rev. Forewood of Lewis, Ind. The latter sang a solo during the services. A choir from Sand Creek church rendered other music. - kbz
