Belton Allyn BURROW's gravestone is rich with information about him, his wife and service to his country in World War II.

Dr. BURROWS was born 3 Mar 1918 in the Poquonock Bridge section of Groton, CT. His father was Judge Warren BURROWS and his wife Emily A. COPP. He was educated at Phillips Academy, Yale University (1937), Columbia University (1943). Dr. BURROWS was a Captain in France during WWII and a member of the Episcopal church. He died 18 Nov 2007. His wife is still living.

New information (thanks to a reader) lists 6 children. This information is probably from an obit:

"Dr. Belton is survived and will be sorely missed by his wife
of 64 years, Dorinda McKenzie (Bell) and his six children,
Calvin B. Burrows, Warren B. Burrows, M.D., Ellen Bur-
rows, Emily A. Burrows, Sarah M. Burrows, and B. Allyn
Burrows, Jr. and 12 grandchildren. "

He married Dorinda on 6 Nov 1943 in New York City and they have seven six children.
