    I am still researching to see if this is the right person, but I so far have only found one record for a "Larry L. Burrow" born in Illinois in 1936.

    "United States Census, 1940," Larry L Burrow in household of Carol L Burrow, Decatur Township, Macon, Illinois, United States
    Name: Larry L Burrow
    Titles & Terms:
    Event: Census
    Event Year: 1940
    Event Place: Decatur Township, Macon, Illinois, United States
    Gender: Male
    Age: 4
    Marital Status: Single
    Race (Original): White
    Race (Standardized): White
    Relationship to Head of Household (Original): Son
    Relationship to Head of Household (Standardized): Son
    Birthplace: Illinois
    Estimated Birth Year: 1936
    Residence in 1935:
    Enumeration District Number: 58-43
    Family Number: 314
    Sheet Number and Letter: 14A
    Line Number: 15
    NARA Publication Number: T627
    NARA Roll Number: 845
    Digital Folder Number: 005459586
    Image Number: 00174
    Household Gender Age Birthplace
    Head Carol L Burrow M 26 Illinois
    Wife Lois I Burrow F 22 Tennessee
    Son Larry L Burrow M 4 Illinois
    Son Darrell E Burrow M 2 Illinois
    Daughter Lorretta L Burrow F 1

    I do show the father "Carol L Burrow" to be listed as "Carroll L Burrow" in other census records and a Find-A-Grave listing for a "Lois I. Burrow" buried in Macon County, IL passed away on January 3, 1967: Link here.

    A "Lois I Carter" (Carter being the mother's name listed on the California Death Index record) is listed in the 1930 census record as being in Macon County, IL, having previously been listed in the 1920 census record as being in Macon, Tennessee. The circumstantial evidence seems to tie together so far. I will look into the other children listed in the Burrow household next.

    I found a listing for a Darrell E. who would be 74 today living in San Diego, CA. This seems to geographically match this SSDI record I found for a "Carrol L Burrow" (third variation in first name spelling) with the right ballpark birth year and SSN issuance state of Illinois:

    "United States Social Security Death Index," Carrol L Burrow, 1999
    First Name: Carrol
    Middle Name: L
    Last Name: Burrow
    Name Suffix:
    Birth Date: 26 February 1914
    Social Security Number: 328-10-9077
    Place of Issuance: Illinois
    Last Residence: San Diego, California
    Zip Code of Last Residence: 92111
    Death Date: 1 March 1999
    Estimated Age at Death: 85

    San Bernadino, CA is about two hours from San Diego, CA. Larry Leon Burrow passed away in 1997 while this Carrol L Burrow passed away in 1999. If it is the right family connection, perhaps they were estranged or the family knows of Mr. Burrow's passing?

    I am going to look into Lorretta B. who is listed in census records as a sister, as well as "Relatives" listed for Darrell E. B. (Mildred B., Cynthia J.).

    Possible lead on sister Loretta L. B. (different first name spelling here):

    "California, Marriage Index, 1960-1985," Loretta L Burrow, 1961
    Name: William W Harris
    Prefix:
    Suffix:
    Event: Marriage
    Event Date: 21 Jan 1961
    Event Place: San Bernardino, California
    Gender: Male
    Age: 21
    Estimated Birth Year: 1940
    Spouse: Loretta L Burrow
    Spouse's Prefix:
    Spouse's Suffix:
    Spouse's Age: 22
    Spouse's Estimated Birth Year: 1939

    Right birth year, name, and same city that Mr. Burrow passed away in.

    I found a divorce record for Darrell E. B. from 1971 issued in San Diego, CA. I also found an SSDI for Mildred B. from 2005 with a last residence in San Diego, CA.

    I found a phone number and address for a Darrell B. in San Diego, CA. PM'ing to Raine and Nemo's Mom.
