Capt. George Burroughs

Born c.1750 - Died c.1827

Capt. George Burroughs (c.1750-c.1827) served as a vestryman for Aquia Church in 1785, 1816, and possibly other years, as well.  He was commissioner of the revenue for Stafford from at least 1797-1805 and operated a store in the village of Aquia from at least 1804-1806.  He and other members of his immediate family seem to have been involved in the local freestone industry.  George was a veteran of the War of 1812.
