It isn't known where Orestus Burton (also found as Erastus) is buried. It's been written that he died in Prattsburgh so it's possible he is buried in an unmarked grave in the old Pioneer Cemetery where his father is buried.

He was the son of Solsbury and Betsey (Avery) Burton. He married Ruth Andrews, daughter of Samuel and Waity (Briggs) Andrews. They had two children, William and Louisa Amelia Burton.

It's believed he was born about 1807; he died sometime before 1837 when his widow married John Russell. His biography can be found at
