Bours, William White
Bours, William White, a clergyman of the Protestant Episcopal Church, was born at Attica, N. Y., in 1826. His early life was spent in mercantile pursuits in Geneva. He was ordained deacon in 1853, and priest in 1855. At first he assisted in St. Peter's Chapel, Geneva, afterwards in St. James's Church, Syracuse, and finally became rector of St. John's Church, Jacksonville, Fla. His death, which occurred there, Nov. 5, 1857, was caused by his assiduous attendance upon the sick in his parish during the prevalence of a malignant fever.
