E O Burget... 150 Years...

Deb Murray

"EUGENE O. BURGET was born at Burget's Corner in Clinton County, Indiana, January 5, 1869. His fellow citizens in Clinton County have followed with a friendly interest his career, made up of successive chapters as a teacher, county official, financier and insurance executive. Mr. Burget is president of the People's Life Insurance Company of Frankfort, one of the most successful organizations of the kind in the state.
He is of English ancestry and of Revolutionary stock. One of his forefathers, Emanuel Burget, was a soldier of the Revolution, went as a pioneer to Southern Ohio, settling in Butler County, and was killed by Indians while trying to reach his block house after swimming the Big Miami River. The grand- parents of Eugene O. Burget were William and Lydia (Keever) Burget, substantial and highly respected people of Butler County, Ohio, and Clinton County, Indiana, where they were pioneers in Johnson Township, where their daughter Elizabeth had the distinction of being the first white child born in the township.
William M. Burget, father of Eugene O., was born in Clinton County, Indiana, June 28, 1844, and the first break in the quiet routine of existence on the home farm came when he enlisted, August 13, 1862, in Company H, Eighty-sixth Indiana Infantry. He was with the Army of the Cumberland in campaigns through Kentucky, Tennessee., Georgia and Alabama, being a participant in the battles of Stone River, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge and Knoxville, and later in the battles of Franklin and Nashville, which completed the rout and dissolution of Hood's Confederate forces. He served until honorably discharged, June 6, 1865. He was three times married and was the father of nine children. His first wife and the mother of Eugene O. Burget was Permelia Mott, daughter of Sayres Mott. Eugene was the second of her four children.
Eugene O. Burget supplemented his advantages in the local schools by attending the Indiana State Normal at Terre Haute, and for several years was a successful teacher, being principal of schools at Scircleville and Hillisburg. In 1894, at the age of twenty-five, he was appointed deputy county auditor of Clinton County and in 1902 was elected chief of that office for a term of four years. After leaving the auditor's office he was assistant cashier of the Clinton County Bank, resigning to become secretary and general manager of the People's Life Insurance Company in 1907. He has had the general management of this insurance organization for twenty-three years, and since July 1, 1926, has also served as president. Mr. Burget has a sound knowledge based on long experience of the insurance business, and has been satisfied to see his own company steadily increase its resources and extend its service until it now has over $54,000,000 of insurance in force and assets of over $8,000,000.
Mr. Burget is a director and former president of the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce, is a past eminent commander of the Knights Templar Commandery at Frankfort and also belongs to other bodies of York and Scottish Rite Masons, and Murat Temple of the Mystic Shrine at Indianapolis. He is a member of the Knights of Pythias, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, B. P. O. Elks, Improved Order of Red Men. He is a Republican and a Methodist.
Mr. Burget married at Frankfort, June 28, 1899, Miss Carrie Boyle. She was born at Michigantown, Clinton County, Indiana, daughter of Josiah L. and Mary Boyle.
