|Original Funeral Card owned by Lorine McGinnis Schulze|
His Funeral Card reads:
Died at Collingwood on Monday June 21st, 1886, Louis Burmister, aged 22 years and 9 months.
Funeral will leave the family residence, Cedar Street on Thursday June 24th at 1:30 p.m for the Dunkerd Cemetery.
After rescuing this card from a flea market I wanted to give Louis a voice. I began my search at Ancestry. 9 year old Lewis (sic) is found in the 1871 census for Puslinch Township Wellington County Ontario with his rather large family of parents Ludwig (54) and Fredericka (33) and his 5 siblings ages 2 to 13.
