Burton family crypt or sepulcher in Oakwood Cemetery, 940 Comstock Avenue, next to Syracuse University, in Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York. At least two generations of Burtons are interred here, including Burr (1804-1865) and Laura (1813-1892) Burton and their ten children. Burr was a salt manufacturer and state legislature who was murdered in his home by an unknown assailant. A stone staircase descends into the crypt below.
Oakwood Cemetery was designed by landscape architect Howard Daniels and opened in 1859. It is a secular Victorian “rural” or “garden” style cemetery where over 60,000 people are interred in 160 wooded acres.
