<u>Jon Saunders </u> - Mar 7, 2014 "The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 56, No 44, p 703, Oct. 29, 1900.
Mrs. Amarillys Vincent Burdick was born in Berlin, N. Y., March 19, 1814, and died of dropsy of the heart at Alfred, N. Y., Oct. 21, 1900. When six years of age she moved with her parents, Joshua and Olive Vincent, to Alfred. May 15, 1934, she was united in marriage to Osmund Alexander Burdick. To them were born six children, three of whom survive, all loyal Sabbath-keepers. The family moved to Belmont, N. Y., in 1869, where the husband passed away March 9, 1885. Since then she has lived with her children in Belmont and Alfred. There are seventeen grandchildren and twenty-seven great-grandchildren, the eldest being nineteen years of age. When Mrs. Burdick was forty-three years of age she and her husband were baptized by Eld. Joshua Clarke and joined the Second Alfred church, in whose fellowship she died. She read the Bible through nine times, and was only prevented from completing it the tenth by failing eyesight. She has been a great singer, and knew many of the old Watts hymns by heart. In the long nights last winter, when she could not sleep, she would raise her voice like the Psalmist of old, in songs of praise to God. Her Christian faith can hardly be better expressed than in the hymn she was last heard to sing a few days before her death. L. C. R.
