(III) T. William, son of Edward and Elizabeth (Parker) Burrell, was born on the family homestead, November 8, 1872. His education was acquired in the district schools, and was supplemented by a course at Canandaigua Academy. While still attending school he assisted in the farm labors during the summer vacations and during all his spare hours, and thus acquired a thorough knowledge of all the details connected with the successful management of a farm. This knowledge he has put to the best practical use, has continued to follow tip all the later improvements in this field, and is ever ready to give a fair and unbiased trial to any new device or invention which has been developed. Scientific farming has a great interest for him and he has been successful in the experiments he has made in this direction. Mr. Burrell is a quiet and unassuming man, modest and retiring in his demeanor, yet he takes an active interest in all matters that concern the welfare of the community and gives his earnest support to the Republican party. He is a member of No. 9 Presbyterian Church. Mr. Burrell is unmarried.
