      DANIEL BURDITT.

      Among those who gained worthy prestige in the agricultural and business circles of Tippecanoe county and who proved loyal and representative citizens was Daniel Burditt, who, after becoming well established and laying by a competency for his family, passed on to his- reward in the silent land. He passed his youth much as other boys of this community, working on the old home place and attending the district schools. When twenty years of age he married Nancy Buck, who was born August 11, 1835, on the Wea Plains, near the Wabash river, in Tippecanoe county, and she was therefore seventeen years old when married, October 10, 1852. After their marriage they lived on a farm for several years, then moved to Oxford, Indiana, where Mr. Burditt conducted a store with the same success that had characterized his farming, succeeding in building up a liberal patronage and becoming an influential citizen in that vicinity.

      The parents of Nancy Burditt were William and Tabitha (Bidwell) Buck, the latter dying when Nancy was four years old. William Buck was a native of Ohio, having been born in Scioto county in 181 1. He was a farmer by occupation and he came to Indiana when a young man, becoming the owner of a farm on the Wea Plains in Tippecanoe county. His family consisted of eight children. He was twice married, and four children were born to him by each wife, four boys and an equal number of girls. His second wife's
      maiden name was Ellen Heath, who is also deceased. Both of his marriages occurred in Tippecanoe county.

      Mrs. Nancy Burditt, in her girlhood, attended school on the Wea Plains, later attended school in Lafayette and also at Fort Wayne. Her father believed in higher education, and, being a prosperous man. was able to give his children excellent advantages in this respect.

      To Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Burditt four children were born, namely: William, born June 6, 1859, was educated in Oxford, Benton county, where his birth occurred. He entered business life as a hardware merchant at which he was successful, but he is now engaged in the real estate business in West Lafayette, having built up a lucrative patronage. He married Anna Ferris, of Oxford, Indiana, on September 12, 1882, and they are the parents of three sons, Byron Lamar Burditt, the evangelist singer, is married to Bessie Bryan, of Lafayette, and they are the parents of one son, William Dean Burditt, born 1907. Byron Lamar Burditt was in the Moody Institute for five years as a student and teacher. Anna, the oldest child of Nancy and Mrs. Daniel Burditt, was born April 24, 1854, married Mahlen Smith, and became the mother of three daughters, all living. Mrs. Anna Smith died August 6, 1893. The names of her children are Hattie, Oma and Ethel.
      Lizzie Burditt, born June i. 1856, is deceased, as is also her sister, Hattie, who was born March 10, 1869. Mrs. Daniel Burditt has ten grand-children and four great-grandchildren. Her daughter Lizzie married Edgar Dudding and six children were born to them ; those living are Charlie, Ralph, Harry and William, all fine young men with bright futures.

      This family all lives in Lafayette, Mrs. Burditt's commodious and neatly kept home being at No. 1416 South street. She is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and is known as a conscientious Christian, a good mother and neighbor.
