Biographical history

David Burpee (1827-1882), the son of Sarah Coburn and David Burpee, was a student in the Classical Department of Mount Allison Wesleyan Academy, 1845-1847. He was from Sheffield, New Brunswick, where he had attended the Sheffield Grammar School. He was the first cousin of Dr. Humphrey Pickard, principal of the Academy in 1851. David became a physician in Philadelphia and married Kate Atlee of that city. His brother, Thomas, married Henrietta Barker and also moved to Philadelphia.
