Made contact today with John Charles Burrell. He is my great-aunt Betty Forrest’s son. My dad knows him. He wasn’t actually available to take his call but I talked with a woman who must have been his wife and he’s going to call me back. As I said before, Craig Forrest said that John might have gotten all of Betty’s family history materials, and John’s wife(?) told me that he’s quite into genealogy, so this should be very interesting!
My dad said of him:
John Burrell lives in Columbia, CT and owns Columbia Laboratories, a water-testing company. After a career with the US Navy in nuclear subs, he went on the get a degree in chemistry from the University of Connecticut. If I remember right, he’s two years older than I am, so was born July 4, 1939. He is an active runner and when last I spoke with him was an avid collector of old cameras.
