Mason Cemetery
Bourbon County,

November 7, 1829 - November 27, 1894

Steven Douglas Burrows, son of John R. Burrows & Electa (DeVol) Burrows, husband of Emeline Celica (Payne) Burrows. (Emeline is buried in the state of Washington). Steven was born in Washington County, Ohio, but lived near Uniontown (Bourbon Co) KS most of his adult life. He was a carpenter by trade, and also farmed. He and Emeline had the following children: Lewis N., Harriet Afaretta, Douglas B., Sarah Elizabeth, Lucie J., Amanda Amelia, Rose, John Henry, Susanna, Samuel Drury, Mary Isabel, Charles Marcus, & Cleva Lorene.

Steven was actually married prior to his marriage to Emeline, however she (Charlotte) died shortly after the marriage from Cholera. Charlotte is buried near Steven's parents, in the Tick Ridge (Burrows) cemetery, located in Ohio.

The ancestry of Steven's mother (Electa Devol) can be traced back to two individual passengers who came from England in 1620 (Frances Cooke & George Soule) on the Mayflower.

Surname is spelled Burrous on the gravestone.
