Birth: Aug. 19, 1864
Union County
Ohio, USA
Death: Feb. 14, 1949

Husband of Frances R Pickrell, married March 27, 1887 Champaign Co, OH.

Urbana Daily Democrat
March 14, 1927
Sherman Burroughs, tenant on the JP Hance farm just east of Urbana, suffered the fracture of both wrists Saturday afternoon while enroute home from Urbana. Attempting to turn his horse into the road to Home at the corner of East Lawn and Washington Avenues, the horse stopped suddenly and caused Mr Burroughs to fall over the dashboard onto the ground. In putting out his hands to break the fall, his full weight came on the arms and the fractures resulted.

Urbana Daily Citizen
April 14, 1937
Mr and Mrs Burroughs, who live at 325 East Water Street, celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary Sunday, March 26. The celebration was held at the home of their son-in-law and daughter Mr and Mrs Charles Eggleston on Sycamore Street. Friends called both afternoon and evening during an informal "at home".

He has no tombstone.
