Bio Photo Please Note: I am behind on replying to messages left on my profile page. During April/May 2014 I am traveling in an area where internet access is sporadic. I will catch up on profile page messages after my return. If you have left a message on my profile page concerning a memorial page it is better to leave a message using the edit tab on the memorial page to which you refer.

Contributor Connie posted this. I thought it was such a great idea I posted it to my page! Thanks, Connie!

Find a Grave has implemented a new way to submit Edits! Unfortunately, there are far too many members for Find a Grave to notify everyone via email, so it's up to us to get the word out. If every member posts this message (or similar) in their profile, hopefully we can help spread the word.

To suggest a correction (SAC) click on the edit tab of the memorial that needs to be corrected. Then click on the link which best describes where your edit should occur. Enter your correction, when you're done, click submit edit. Your request will be sent to the manager of the memorial and will appear in the managers' profile under the Edits tab.

Managers will no longer receive emails. They must go directly to their profile page and click on the Edits tab. Managers can approve, deny or ignore, suggested corrections. It's quick and easy!

The exception:
Requesting a transfer, adding family links, or other corrections are still handled the same way. Click on "suggest any other correction or addition," type your message and press "send this message." The manager of the memorial will receive an email.

===============================

Please ask permission before posting my personal family photographs, photographs I have taken of grave stones or biographical material I have written from my memorial pages on this site to Ancestry.com or any other website or personal webpages.

Please see FindAGrave Frequently Asked questions for more information:

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

FRANK BURROWS DEAD AT HOME IN THIS CITY

Retired Policeman Who Had Served More Than Forty-Two Years.

Former Policeman Frank Burrows, who was retired in July of last year after a service of more than forty-two years, died at his home, 271 N street, this morning, about 8:15 o'clock. His wife and several sons and daughters survive him.
The deceased was a native of Montgomery county, Md., where he was born July 13, 1842. He was appointed a member of the force May 6, 1869, and served until last July, when he was retired.

Served in Union Army.

Frank Burrows served as one of the capital's defenders in the three-month service. During the forty-three years he had been connected with the police force he performed most of his duty in Georgetown. He had been a precinct detective a number of years. Later he was given a detail at the Emergency Hospital.
Many prizes were won by him for superiority in skating contests. He was once regarded as the best skater in teh District. He was also an enthusiastic fisherman and was given credit for knowing more places where fishing is good than any other angler in the District.

Suffered Severe Illness.

His appearance at police headquarters the 13th of last July followed a most remarkable convalescence from what appeared to have been a fatal illness. Members of his family had been told to prepare for the end, bu the patient rallied and surprised his family by leaving his bed and going away from the house. Recently he heard how the skaters were enjoying themselves on the river, and confessed to a boyish longing to get on the ice once more.
The funeral services will be held Thursday, with interment in Oak Hill cemetery.

Native of Maryland.

Frank Burrows, who was sixty-nine years of age July 13 of last year, was a native of Montgomery county, Md., and had been connected with the police department since May 6, 1860. Most of his police duty was performed in Georgetown, where for many years he served in the capacity of precinct detective. During recent years he had filled a detail at the Emergency Hospitia, performing twelve hours' duty daily.
In addition to having been many times commended for his police duty, he was the recipient of many honors for fancy skating, having earned the reputation of leading the District skaters. He was also well known in angling circles. During his younger days he fished every hole and tributary of the uppor Potomac, and was famous as a black bass fisherman.

Declined to Retire.

He could have been retired from the ploice force several years ago, but he often expressed a desire to be permitted to die "in harness," and because of his former meritorious service Maj. Sylvesterwillingly granted his request. His wife, who was Miss Margaret A. Cook before her mariage, and seven children survive him.
His children are Samuel C. Burrows, member of the police force; Mrs. George Leizear, Henry Burrows, Charles C. Burrows, Mrs. A. L. Reinberg, Andrew H. Burrows, Mrs. Barr, wife of Dr. W. C. Barr, and Forrest J. Burrows. Four other children, two sons and two daughters died.
April 13, 1861, Frank Burrows, then nineteen years of age, responded to President Lincoln's call for volunteers and was mustered into the United States service as a private in Capt. James Goddard's company of volunteer infantryman. He went as a member of Company B, 1st Battalion, 1st Regiment, of which Col. James A. Tait was regiment commander, and Maj. J. McHenry Hollingsworth was battalion commander.

Among the First Defenders.

This was one of the first battalions to organize in quick response to President Lincoln's call for 75,000 volunteers. The work of guarding public buildings and the bridges and other approaches to the capital was assigned these volunteers. Private Burrows was a member of the comopany that was first to cross the Aqueduct bridge into Virginia, his company passing into Old Dominion territory the night of May 22, 1861.
Private Burrows was continually with his company, and he received high commendation from his commanding officer for meritorious service. July 13, 1861 he was given an honorable discharge from the service and was employed in the quartermaster's department of the army, and later in the Treasury Department, giving up the latter position to accept appointment in the police department.
