Birth: 1830, England
Death: Dec. 4, 1887
Hamilton County
Ohio, USA

The lot owner for Robert Burrows plot is the Wm Penn Lodge, #56, in Cincinnati's Independent Order of Old Fellows. He died at 108 Milton St. in Cincinnati, OH on 4 Dec 1887 and was buried on Dec 6th. He died from heart disease. His burial was ordered by A. J. Leo & Thos. Ruff Trustees per the OH Death Record index card #5072. Reported as Garden LN, Sect 15, Lot 20, # 43 but today is in Section 118/Lot 101. The same undertaker B. Schroder took care of his wife as well.

The census supports his age and birth place in England. Based on above he was born in ABOUT 1830.

On the 1860 Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., OH census, I found plasterer Robert Burrows, 30; Elizabeth Burrows, 27; Robt Burrows, 8; Mary J. Burrows, 4 and Henry Burrows, 2. Parents England born, kids in OH.

On the 1880 Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., OH census, I found plasterer Robert Burrows, 49; wife Elizabeth, 48; son or daughters: Henry, 22; Alice, 19; Annie, 17; Ella, 9 and Emma, 5.
Robert's will was filed in Hamilton Co., Ohio on 23 Dec 1887. His daughter Mary Jane Watters was the executor. The beneficiaries were Harriet Burrows, Ella Burrows, Emma Burrows, Mary Jane Watters, Harry Burrows, Alice Burrows, and Annie B. King. Box 68, case #32793. His residence was in Cincinnati.

Others Burrows in his wife Elizabeth S. B's cemetery lot 101 (per photo volunteer) are Alice (D 1949) and Harry (D 1934). Emma M. Burrows (D 1965) is here with no marker. Son Robert, Jr. does NOT have a marker in lot 101. Also in same lot with markers are: his daughters Ella & husband Percy Groves and Mary Jane Burrows Watters (Waters) (B 1856, D 1903. Mary J.B.Ws' son Wm H. Watters and daughter Mary L. Watters' death record lists parents Mary J Burrows & Ezekiel R Watters), Marie (AKA Mary L. Watters, 1876-1968), Alice (D 1936), and William Watters (1880-1980).

The only other Burrows in Section 15 is John, died 1895 in lot 24, #9.

The grave is hard to find if counting rows, as the first 2 rows are empty.
Grave transcription:
DIED DEC. 4, 1887

Not sure why he is listed in the William Penn Lodge If his marker says Washington Lodge.
