Burrows Genealogy

Before venturing out to this cemetery, I located this family history and genealogy compiled and published in 1975. I located it at and was surprised because so many of the genealogies found online were compiled or written and published in the late 1800s.

Mr. Burrows, whose first name was probably Raymond, resided in Lakewood, OH. Page 5 of this typewritten document, gives the date of the foreword as December 1974 and his home address as 12075 Lake Ave. Lakewood (Cleveland), Ohio 44107. I am wondering if Mr. Burrows is still living? So, I use the index to locate the name Burrows, Raymond Earle and easily find him listed on pages 512 and 513.

He is listed as born 17 Feb 1894 and being married to Edith HOLE 11 Sept 1920. She died in 1939 and she is listed as being buried at Maple Grove Cemetery, Vermillion, OH. This cemetery is listed at Find a Grave as being in Erie County but no Burrows surname graves are listed.

My next step is to add some data from the genealogy to the Burrows names already in my tree at
