Wilson S. Burgett, a native of Sargent Township, and a son of I. W. Burgett, whose sketch is found on another page, was born December 23, 1863. He was reared in Sargent Township, where he continued to live until eight years ago, when he removed to his present farm two miles south of Camargo.

In 1886 he was married to Miss Kate May, a daughter of Judge Brown (see sketch). They have three children : Ray Brown, Burley Sumner and Wayne Brenton.

W. S. Burgett owns two hundred and ten acres of land, on which he lives, and is one of the intelligent and representative young business men of the County. In politics he is an enthusiastic Republican and has served two years as Township committeeman.
