Burch received several lots in what became Stamford Township and established his home at the mouth of Chippawa Creek. A few miles to the north, beside the Niagara rapids, he constructed a grist- and sawmill in 1785–86. Its workmanship and the ingenious log flume were admired by travellers of the period.” (Submitted on December 20, 2014.)
