    1. [S1251] Find A Grave, Aaron Burr, Jr.
      United States Vice President. After serving as a Major in the Continental Army under General George Washington in the Revolutionary War, he became a successful lawyer and politician. In 1789, he was appointed Attorney General of New York and was elected to the US Senate in 1791, serving for six years. In 1800, he became the 3rd United States Vice President in the administration of President Thomas Jefferson. Nearing the end of his term as vice president, he challenged Alexander Hamilton to a duel for besmirching his reputation. On the morning of July 7, 1804, it ended when Burr shot Hamilton to death. Though the public cried murder, Burr was let off and was able to complete his vice-presidential term. In 1807, he was brought to trial on charges of conspiracy for leading a military charge against Spanish Territory and for trying to separate territories from the United States. He was aquited of the charges but the conspiracy scandal ended his political career. He spent his final years traveling throughout Europe and after returning to America, died at age 80 from multiple strokes.

    4. [S1251] Find A Grave, Theodosia Stillwell Bartow Prevost Burr.
      The wife of Aaron Burr. She was the daughter of Reverend Theodosius Bartow (1712 – 1746) and Alice Anne Stillwell (later de Visme) (1714 – 1782). In 1763 she married James Mark Prevost (1736-1781), an officer in the British Army, with whom she had five children. During the Revolution Lieutenant Colonel Prevost continued to serve with the British Army, and Theodosia developed pro-American leanings while remaining in New Jersey to manage her family's estate, "The Hermitage". James Prevost died in Jamaica, and in 1782 Theodosia married Aaron Burr. The Burrs had one child who survived to adulthood, Theodosia Bartow Burr Alston (1783-1813). The elder Theodosia was in ill health even before her marriage to Burr, and died from the effects of what was probably uterine cancer. She was buried at St. John's Burying Ground, one of the cemeteries associated with Trinity Church. St. John's was later developed as a park, and most remains were not moved, so the exact location of Theodosia Burr's interment is not known. A no longer extant Trinity Church Cemetery was the Old Saint John's Burying Ground for St. John's Chapel. It was later turned into a park, with most of the burials left in place. The park was renamed several times, and is now called James J. Walker Park.
