Biography of Charles A. Burke
Franklin County, NY Biographies





Charles A. Burke, born in Bombay January 21, 1843, worked on a farm and attended Fort Covington Academy in his youth, and then studied law. Admitted to the bar in 1868, he practiced in a small way at Hogansburgh and elsewhere in the northern part of the county for a couple of years, finally locating in Malone in 1870, in partnership with Henry G. Kilburn, and having continued to practice here ever since. At one time he also operated a planing mill and sash and door factory in company with John Kelley. Mr. Burke has always been a pronounced Democrat, and in younger years was one of the most active and influential workers in that party. He was often chairman of the county committee, and during the first Cleveland administration was postmaster of Malone.
