S. T. BUIRLEY, whose fine, eighty-acre farm is situated five miles south of Sidney, is one of the prominent citizens of Orange township, Shelby county, O., of which he is a trustee. He was born August 25, 1862, in Orange township, and is a son of Daniel and Mary (Venice) Buirley.
Daniel Buirley was born in Shelby county, O., where his father had been a pioneer, probably coming from Germany. In the early subscription schools Daniel Buirley obtained his knowledge of text books and afterward devoted his life to farm pursuits, first in Orange and later in Clinton township, living into his seventy-first year. He married Mary Venice, who was born in Champaign county, O., and died in Orange township, when aged seventy years. They had five children, namely: John A., who is a resident of Clinton township; Benjamin, who lives at Jackson Center; S. T., who attended school both in Clinton and Orange townships;. Delilah, who is deceased; and Elizabeth, who is now deceased, was the wife of H. H. Wilson.
S. T. Buirley remained on the home farm in Clinton township until 1888, when he came to Orange township to live, and in 1909 bought the old Fergus place and started immediately to make the improvements which have converted it into one of the valuable and attractive properties of this section, his residence being built according to ideas of comfort and convenience. General farming is carried on here very successfully and good stock raised.
Mr. Buirley was married to Miss Mary Redinbo, who was born in Green township, Shelby county, and they have one daughter, Dema D., who resides with her parents. Politically a democrat, Mr. Burley takes a deep interest in public issues and is somewhat of a leader in local opinion. In 1910 he was elected a member of the board of trustees of Orange township and has proved an able, honest and efficient public official. He belongs to the Odd Fellows and attends lodge meetings at Sidney.
