Honorable William Burchfield Biography

Honorable William Burchfield of Ferguson, died June 13, 1873, aged about seventy-two.

Judge Burchfield, while hauling logs, about eight weeks prior to his death, fell and was caught between a roller and a stone, resulting in compound fracture and dislocation of the ankle joint.

For eight weeks all that medical skill could do was done to alleviate his suffering and restore him to health. His son, Dr. J. P. Burchfield, Drs. Fisher, Smith, and Dale were in attendance, doing all that could be done, but despite of every effort be grew worse, and on the 7th of June, acting on the advice of his physicians, he consented to have his leg amputated, which was done by Dr. Fisher.

For a few days after the operation was performed he gradually improved, and there was strong hope of his recovery, but the loss of a limb and the suffering he had endured proved too much for his enfeebled constitution.

He was elected associate judge in 1866, and at the time of his death was acting jury commissioner.
