"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 14, No 31, p 123, Jan. 7, 1858.
In Albion, Dane Co., Wis., Dec. 23d, of disease of the heart, Mrs. Elizabeth Burdick, widow of Daniel Burdick, aged 64 years. She was born in Rensselaer Co., N. Y., where, in early life, she experienced religion and united with the Seventh-day Baptist Church in Berlin; and through a life checkered with trials, the grace of God was her principal support.
About thirty years ago, while living in Lincklaen, Chenango Co., N. Y., she was suddenly bereaved of her husband, who was killed by the fall of a tree. She was left with slender means, and surrounded with a large family of children, to which another was soon added.
Her oldest children, though sons, were very young to meet the demands of the family, for planning and labor, and thus the main responsibility fell upon her. But she supported it with courage with courage and fortitude, exerting a happy control, not only over her business but over her rising family, most of whom were sons, so that she was able to keep them together, and spare herself the grief so common to indigent womanhood, the relinquishing of tender children to the cold keeping of those who seek them for what they give promise of being able to do.
She removed from the scene of her early trials to Allegany Co., N. Y., where she united with God's people in fellowship and Christian labor, and stood faithfully at her post, as head of the family, but till she had seen the last one gathered into the covenant of Grace.
Following some of her children to Wisconsin, some years since, she sought her place with her covenant brethren in Albion, which she filled until called to fill a higher one in the church above.
During her last sickness she realized from those of her children who were able to be with her, a faithful return of that care and attention, which she had lavished upon them, from the fullness of a mother's heart.
Her end was peaceful, and her memory will be fondly cherished not only by those who addressed her by that endearing title, but by all who knew her as an example of Christian courage, fortitude and patience. T. E. B.
