'Prominent among the early settlers of Harpersfield township, Ashtabula County, was William Burgett, Sr., who came here from New York with his family in 1819, being then past forty years of age, his birth having occurred in 1776. Wild animals of all kinds then roamed at will through the dense woods, and a few Indians remained, but were for the most part friendly. Building a log cabin, he was here employed as a tiller of the soil until his death, in 1830. He married, in New York, Abbie Andrews, by whom he had seven children, as follows: Jehoiakim W., born in 1801, died in 1850; John; Reuben; Priscilla; William Jr., the special subject of this sketch; David; and Ursula.'
