Obituary

Daniel E. Burroughs

Death again entered our midst Thursday evening, November 10, when Daniel Burroughs fell asleep and entered into a new life, and light. His illness had been of a long duration but he endured all with with a submission to his Master whom he trusted to the last. The Universalist church, of which he was a regular attendant as long as health would permit, will lose one of its most able and useful laborers. He was born in Kirby in 1842, where he lived until he enlisted in 1861 serving three years in the Civil War. He was married to Helen Farrington March 1865. He came to this place to live in 1881 where he has made many friends, as was shown by the large number which gathered at the funeral. He leaves a wife and son and daughter, Mrs. William Reed, of this place, and Wesley Burroughs, of Malden, Mass., a sister, Mrs. Ira Lewis, of Concord Corner. The funeral was held from h s late residence Sunday afternoon Rev. H. H. Hoyt officiating. The interment took place at Grove Cemetery, at East St. Johnsbury.
