Biography of Whatley Burfield
Houston County, MN Biographies

Whatley Burfield, a former resident of Sheldon township, where for a long series of years until his death he was a well known and respected citizen, was a native of Pennsylvania. When a young man he learned the carpenter's trade, but, coming at an early date to Houston county, Minn., he soon found it more profitable to engage in farming, and accordingly took land in Sheldon township, which he improved and cultivated for many years. During the Civil War he served in a Minnesota regiment. His death occurred in May, 1907. Mr. Burfield married Isabelle Lee, a native of Norway, and they had a family of nine children. Mrs. Burfield, now seventy nine years old, has until recently continued to reside on the old homestead, but is now making her home with her daughter in North Dakota.
