DAVID BALCH (2 Jul 1804 - 29 Jul 1897)

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs. Aug. 5, 1897

Surnames: BALCH, COMSTOCK, BACON, ALLIS

David BALCH was born in the town of Deerfield, Mass., July 2d, 1804. When about six years old, his parents moved to Salina, Onondaga Co., then a thriving village on account of the extensive (salt?) works in its vicinity, Syracuse being in its infancy with but a few houses.

On January 20th, 1831, he was united in marriage to Polly COMSTOCK, of the same county, and together they traveled down life’s pathway 'till death did them part', his aged partner having departed this life February 24, 1895, aged eighty four years.

Soon after their marriage they came to this place and located on the farm now owned by John Sh--wood, north of Shelby Basin. After two or three years he sold that and purchased the one now owned by James Cullen on the same street. In 1841 he exchanged that farm for one on the Bates road, owned by his father-in-law, Jude COMSTOCK, where he continued to reside until his death July 29th, 1897, at the advanced age of ninety-three years and twenty-seven days.

He leaves to mourn his loss, besides a large circle of friends, who respected him for his uprightness of character and honorable dealings, four children - Jude II, of Janesville, Wis.; Mrs. T. A. BACON, Mrs. J. E. ALLIS and William J. BALCH, of this place.
