Richard Hart Burroughs
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 10, 1828
Mercer County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Jan. 25, 1893
Hunterdon County
New Jersey, USA

Richard was the eldest of three children of Moses H. Burroughs, a farmer, and Jerusha Hart Burroughs.

Richard grew up in Hopewell Twp., Mercer Co., New Jersey. He was a farmer as well.

He married Hannah Ann Mathews. They had four children: Frances E. in 1856, Jerusha V. in 1858, Jeremiah Mathews 'Jeremy' in 1861, and Anna Mariah in 1864. Only Jeremy survived to adulthood.

He must have been a bit of a spendthrift, being specifically disinherited in his father's will: ""It is my wish and I do hereby direct that my Executors shall not pay or satisfy any debt or debts heretofore contracted by my son Richard Hart Burroughs..."

Richard died of chronic diffuse meningo- encephalitis after an illness of one month.

He had three grandchildren and 145 additional descendants as of early 2008.
