    Mary Jorantha (Coon) Burch was born July 25, 1847, near South Brookfield, N. Y., and died February 8, 1932, near Leonardsville, N. Y.
    She was the daughter of DeWitt Coon and Mary Ann Stillman. Most of her life was lived in New York State. On March 24, 1866, she was married to Azore Estee Burch, at Utica, Wis. Her husband died October 24, 1925. One son, James Garfield Burch of Long Beach, Calif., died November 16, 1912. Three other children: Clinton D. Burch of Syracuse, Lois of Binghamton, and Charlotte (Mrs. Rowland Hughes) of Leonardsville. There are also four grandchildren: Kathryn Burch of Marathon, N. Y.; Mrs. John Dean of Long Beach, Calif.; Charlotte A. Hughes of Utica, N. Y.; and Rowland B. Hughes of Leonardsville.
    For the past ten years Mrs. Burch had lived with her daughter, Mrs. Rowland Hughes, and for several years her health had been none too good. She was taken with pneumonia and passed peacefully away. She was well known and much loved by a large circle of friends, for her Christian courtesy and cheerful and helpful disposition.
    She was a member of the Seventh Day Baptist Church at Leonardsville, having joined July 31, 1897, during the pastorate of Rev. J. A. Platts. The funeral service was held at the Chesbro Undertaking parlors at Brookfield, on Thursday, February 11, and was conducted by her pastor Rev. Paul S. Burdick. Burial was in the Brookfield cemetery.
