Burrus Osgood, son of Elihu and Amy (LaMunion) Osgood, was born in Manchester, June 27, 1818. He owned a farm and obtained good results as a reward for his labor, using much of his leisure time for the benefit of his fellow-townsmen. He served with marked ability in many positions of responsibility and trust, invariably discharging his duties in an upright and satisfactory manner, and owing to the implicit confidence inspired by his sterling integrity, he was frequently called upon to act as executor and trustee of estates, a business which absorbed much of his attention for more than fifty years. Mr. Osgood died September 20, 1901. He married (first) Maria Jane West, who died without issue, and in 1847 he married (second) Sarah Peirce, daughter of Ezra and Eliza (Gurley) Peirce. Children: Carlos Peirce, see forward; Addie E., born January 6, 1819, married (first) Joseph Clark; married (second) Frank Short.
