Narrative

There was a New York birth record for John, in 1838, but in the 1860 census record he was only 13. Was there a second son with this name? However, in the 1870 census, Lucretia Burchill was living with Joseph and John Burchill (age 35, born 1835), and this is closer to the date given in his obituary.
John was injured as a child. He never married, and lived with his younger sister until his death.
