    Silas Burdick was born in Brookfield, N. Y., September 9, 1817, and died on Dodge's Creek, N. Y., October 16, 1909, being 92 years, 1 month and 1 week old.
    Brother Burdick came to Allegany Co., N. Y., in February, 1844, and settled on Dodge's Creek in the town of Genesee, which with the exception of a short time at Nile, N. Y., has ever since been his home. He was baptized and united with the West Genesee Seventh-day Baptist Church in 1854 and continued his membership with that body until the church disbanded about two years ago. For a number of years he was clerk of the church and for a time its treasurer. He held at different times offices in his home town and was an active participant in the affairs of State and Nation and had voted at every presidential election since and including that of 1840. In that year (1840) he was married to Phebe Crandall, by whom he had five children, three of whom are still living: Mrs. Elvira Keller and Silas G. of Dodge's Creek and Lavern of Nile, N. Y. Mrs. Burdick died in August, 1892.
    Funeral services were held from the home of his daughter, Mrs. Keller, October 18, 1909, conducted by the pastor of the First Genesee Seventh-day Baptist Church. Words were spoken suggested by Heb. xi, 8-10. S. H. B.
