Buried in the Short Falls Cemetery, Epsom, NH. Died age 19-8-25. He was killed, according to Gerald Marden, -- shot through a train window while travelling west. His body was brought home for burial.

St. Albans Daily Messenger, p. 7 Feb. 17, 1908
A coroner's inquest held this morning at Stanbridge, Que, over the body of Artur Burnham, of Short Falls, NH, who shot and killed himself Saturday afternoon, while on the train between St. Alexander and Des rivieres, Que., and a verdict was given that the man committed suicide. Burnham and W.J. Crowe of Suncook, NH, bought tickets from Montreal to St. Albans. Burnham had with him a Winchester rifle which he placed between his legs when he took his seat. No one knows just how the tragedy occurred. The unfortunate man had been asleep for some time when suddenly a shot rang out and it was discovered that Burnham was shot between the eyes and was dead before anyone could reach him. The body was taken from the train at Stanbridge and the dead man's relatives in Short Falls were notified. It is understood that he is survived by his parents and several brothers and sisters.
