Rufus S. / son of Benjamin & Rebecca / BURROWS / Died Jan. 16, 1822 / Aged 1 YR. 1 MON. / & 11 DAYS

Twin brother of Roswell S. Burrows, Rufus is the first person to be buried in this cemetery.

His birth date calculated from the death date given here is 5 Dec 1820 but that is not what the Burrows genealogy gives as a date. It read 2 Dec 1820. Rufus was born and died in Groton, CT but there is no vital record in the Barbour Index for either birth or death.

His twin brother is also buried here but there is no exact birth date on his grave either.
