Mallory, since you mentioned that you have several Burrills in Massachusetts I thought I would take a chance and see if you might help me. Actually, you may have already communicated with me years ago. Not sure.
My gr-grandmother was Anna Maria Bogardus who married Emmanuel Burrill in MA-1901. With Emmanuel she had 3 daughters but she also had 3 children [maybe 4] with a Charles F Ross. No record can be found that they were married. It seems that Emmanuel adopted Charlie [youngest Ross]when he married Anna but then Charlie died about 1903. Step-daughter Alice A married Bassett. Step-son John Bogardus Ross married McCrate and also had 4 children with my grandmother-Palmyre Poulin. Again, cannot find marriage record. If you have any info on the step children I would appreciate it.
Do you know Emmanuel's parents names?
Emmanuel is listed as married yet living as a border alone in the 1930 census . Do you know what happened to Anna? Do you know who each of the 3 girls married [Hazel L; Lucy K; Anna M]
I cannot find these people in the 1940 Census.
Thanks so much for at least reading this, and maybe giving me some answers
