    Ada Jane Whitford was born in Lincklaen, N. Y., Jan. 17, 1835, and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. John B. Crandall, in Milton Junction, March 24, 1909, at the age of 74 years, 2 months and 7 days. She was the daughter of Willet S. and Clarissa Campbell Burdick. When she was sixteen years of age she came with her parents to Utica, Wis., and soon after taught school, teaching two terms in the vicinity of Utica.
    March 8, 1855, she was married to John Whitford, also a native of New York state. For the first two years of their married life their home was in Albion whence they moved to Utica. Here they lived until about sixteen years ago when they came to Milton Junction to live, to be near their two daughters who had homes here.
    The family circle was first broken twelve years ago in the death of her elder daughter, Mrs. May Coon. This was a shock to her from which she did not recover for some time. July 7, 1901, her husband died, after which she remained in her home alone until four years ago when she went to live with her only daughter, Mrs. John B. Crandall.
    Here in the course of nature relations have been reversed and the daughter, who was once the object of the mother's care and solicitude, became the one who ministered to the mother in her declining years and increasing helplessness.
    Mrs. Whitford was baptized early in life and united with the Utica S. D. B. church. Here she kept her membership and gave her support to the church and ladies' society until that church disbanded when she joined the Milton Junction church, in whose fellowship she died.
    Besides the daughter and eight grandchildren the deceased leaves three brothers, Rev. C. A. Burdick, Farina, Ill., Rev. F. O. Burdick, Boulder, Colo., and Lee Burdick, Indianapolis, Ind.
    Funeral services were held at the late home, conducted by her pastor Rev. A. J. C. Bond. Burial in the Milton Junction cemetery.
