Oscar F. Burdick, who had been a resident of St. Johnsbury for nearly 30 years, died at his home in Summerville, Tuesday, April 3rd, aged 80 years. The cause of his death was a general breaking down of the system hastened by several shocks during the past years. Mr. Burdick was a veteran of the Civil war having served in Co. D, 5th Reg't. Vt. Vol. Inf. He was one of the most respected members of Chamberlin Post, G.A.R., and a man who will be greatly missed by a wide circle of friends. The funeral was held at his late residence on Thursday afternoon, Rev. J.H. Hoffman officiating. The services were in charge of Chamberlin Post a delegation from which acted as an escort. The bearers were Marshal Montgomery, Albert Harris, William Ward and Charles Ross. Mr. Burdick leaves a wife and several children, two of whom, Almond and George, reside in St. Johnsbury.
