Mr. Burbank was a civil war veteran, and was for many years employed with the Union Mill Co., at Waterloo. He had been in failing health for about thee years, and about two weeks previous to his death he suffered a fall in which a hip was dislocated and he was otherwise injured which owing to his age of 89 years hastened his death.

During his enlistment he saw varied service and was in many engagements.
Soon after the war closed Mr. Burbank came to Iowa, settling on a farm near Reinbeck. On March 9, 1877, he was married to Miss Emmeline Smith near Reinbeck. For several years prior to moving with his family to Waterloo in 1884 Mr. Burbank lived on a farm near Grundy Center. With the exception of seven years at Park Rapids, Minn., he was a resident here from 1884 until his death. For 18 years he hauled wheat for the mill company. He was a member of Robert Anderson post, No. 68, G.A.R. and of the Congregational church, Waterloo.
