William Oliver Burford, son of James and Sarah Burford, was born December 8, 1853, and died December 21, 1912, being 59 years and 13 days old. He was married to Rose Shirk February 2, 1876. To them were born three children, who live to mourn his departure, namely, Mrs. Clarence Rice and James Burford, of Roachdale and Mrs. Fred Swain, of Tangier. He was afflicted with an incurable malady four or five years ago, and although everything was done that could be done to affect a cure, he gradually grew worse until death came as a release. Three weeks ago he was taken to Indianapolis for treatment and died while there. Besides a wife and children, he leaves three grand children, four brothers, a large number of neices and nephews and many friends to mourn. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Mr. Dodamead of the Primitive Baptist Church of which the deceased had been a faithful member for several years. The services were held in the Waveland Baptist Church on Monday, December 23.
