      Newspaper Obituary - Monday, January 24, 1966 Palladium Times - Oswego, New York - Faces DWI Charge, Richland Couple Dies in Route 13 Crash; Driver Gets Summons - Pulaski - A retired railroad man and his wife were fatally injured in a two-car crash early Sunday morning in Route 13 three miles west of Altmar. This was the first highway fatal accident this year in Oswego County. Pronounced dead at the scene were Elmer W. Burdick, 71, and his wife, Mrs. Adelia M. Burdick, 62, of Railroad Street, Richland. According to Investigator Honors, BCI, and Trooper Orville Byrne who headed the investigation, Burdick was driving west in Route 14 when a car driven east by William Sampson, 52, of Altmar, collided with the Burdick car nearly head-on. Dr. A. B. Thompson of Pulaski served as coroner's physician and pronounced the couple dead at the scene. Assistant District Attorney Thomas McCarthy ordered an autopsy at the Oswego County laboratory. Sampson suffered facial lacerations and a possible fracture of an ankle and he was admitted to the Oswego Hospital. Trooper Byrne issued Sampson a summons for driving while intoxicated. According to state police, both cars were badly wrecked and the Pulaski Volunteer Fire Department was summoned to flush away gasoline from the highway. It was after this that the county sander was also summoned to sand the highway where the water started to freeze over. Assisting in the investigation at the scene were Troopers Terry E. Crast, John M. Doyle Jr., Raymond E. Schilling, David I. Ingraham, Robert J. Dwyer, James E. Maring and Sgt. Merritt Zapl. Mr. Burdick was born October 3, 1894, in Jordan, and was retired as a laborer from the New York Central Railroad. He formerly served as a trolley car operator at Montezuma and retired from that in 1932. He later served at the Curtis Lumber company in Richland and retired from this in 1960. Surviving are two daughters, Miss Jean Burdick of Syracuse, and Mrs. Frances Shoans, Jordan; also a son, Harry Burdick, Miltitas, California; a step-daughter, Mrs. Gerald (Ida) Denny, Richland; two brothers and three sisters in Jordan and 22 grandchildren. Mrs. Burdick was born September 29, 1903, daughter of George and Mary O'Brien Sanderson, at Montezuma. She also formerly resided in Baldwinsville. She was a practical nurse at the former Oswego County Sanitarium and has served as a nurse at the Evergreen Nursing Home in Pulaski for several years. Her marriage to Mr. Burdick was in 1953. Surviving are her daughter, Miss Burdick; her mother, Mrs. Floyd (Mary) Walker, Seneca Falls; her step-mother, Mrs. Rose Sanderson, Seneca Falls; eight grandchildren 13 great-grandchildren, five sisters, Mrs. Charles Cook and Mrs. Leo Valere, both of Seneca Falls; Mrs. Peter Lowers, Phoenix; Mrs. James Cunningham, Auburn, Mrs. George Jones, Wolcott; two brothers, William Sanderson, Seneca Falls, and Robert Sanderson, Rochester; two half-brothers, Herbert Joshlin and Peter Joshlin, Seneca Falls.
