     On 4 or 5 Sept. 1779 he entered service as a substitute for his younger brother John Blizzard who had been drafted for three months to go to the northwest against the Indians. He was a private in the company of Capt. Robert Davis of Rockingham County and marched to the west fork of the Monongahela where he was stationed at Lowder's Fort.
      He also served at least twenty days under the orders of Capt. Robert Davis against the Tories.
     6 Dec. 1833. Pendleton Co., Va. Thomas (X) Hoover of said county declares that in the latter part of 1779 Burton Blizzard served three months in the company of Capt.

Notes for Burton Blizzard:
General Notes:
Burton Blizzard, a native of Virginia, became an early settler of Ross County, where he married Millie Willoughby, and, about 1807-08, settled in Madison County, Range Township, on land he purchased of William Dunlap at $1 per acre, and here he spent his entire life. From time to time, he purchased more land, till he was in possession of 900 acres of good land. Mr. Blizzard was somewhat of a carpenter, and was often called upon by the new settlers as they located to come and hew puncheons for their cabins. Mr. Blizzard was one of the active, prominent men of that day. He assisted Patrick McLene in much of his surveying, and it is said helped lay out the lots for the town of London. He filled many of the important offices of his township and county. He served as a Justice of the Peace for thirty years, and as County Commissioner from 1816 to 1839 inclusive. He was largely identified with the establishment, growth and prosperity of Madison County; a man of more than ordinary ability, firm in character and integrity, he was one of the men for pioneer times, and his life was crowned with prosperity and usefulness. His wife survived him several years, and died at the advanced age of nearly ninety-four years. Their living children are Levin W., who married Clarinda Countys; Sallie, married William Crawford; Betsey, married John Corson; William, married and settled in Missouri; and Mary, now Mrs. Workman, also a resident of Missouri. Those deceased were James, married Mary Carr; Hattie, married Thomas Prosser; and Burton, who married Elizabeth Foster.
