Daniel W. Burchard, Born in Benton county, Missouri, March 5, 1858. When he was but a child his parents came
to California and settled at Marysville. After a residence there of about two years the father went to Oregon and
the family moved to Stockton. The father, Rev. J. L. Burchard, is a Methodist preacher, and he remained in Oregon
about one year, and then returned to California, and has been in this Conference ever since. When the subject of
this sketch was about thirteen years of age they moved to Oakland, where he was educated at the Oakland High School.
In 1872 he came to this county and spent about one year in Round valley; then returned to Oakland, where he remained
until the fall of 1873, when once more he returned to Round valley and was in the employ of the Government on the
Indian reservation until 1876, when he commenced teaching, which he followed about eighteen months, when he, in
company with J. L. Broaddus, engaged in merchandising at Covelo, under the firm name of Eurchard & Broaddus.
This, however, lasted but a short time. Closing out he went to Santa Rosa and entered the law office of Barclay
Henley & George A. Johnson as a student. After a course of reading he was admitted to practice law May 18,
1880. He then returned to Covelo, where he is engaged in the practice of his profession. He married, December 31,
1876, Miss Mary Josephine Broaddus, daughter of Rev. J. L. Broaddus, of Little Lake. She died December 31, 1878,
leaving two children, Martha M. and Mary J.
