About Elizabeth Burroughs

Elizabeth was born about 1625. She died in Newtown, Queens Co., which is now called Elmhurst.

Her parentage is disputed. Some people say that she was the daughter of John Jessup and Joanna Kerrich Jessup. Others say that she was the daughter of Thomas Pettit and Christian Mellows Pettit and the widow of a Mr. Reed.

About 1664 in Newtown, Elizabeth became the second wife of John Burroughs. They had one son together: John Jr. in 1665.
