Cemetery #2 located on the AEP property. With all of the Burke's located in this cemetery at a glance I was under the pure assumption that this was the Burke Cemetery that can be found at the following URL: However at a closer look I see that I was wrong and that this is a different cemetery but I am sure it lies very near to the one listed above. Here are my notes and documentation. Off of a side road which leads to the pond owned by AEP, a gravel road forks to the left and brings you directly to the cemetery which is located with in a small fenced off area with white posts, and gates are bound by a chain but no lock. This cemetery is very well maintained and appears to have been decorated for our last Memorial Day. Again I have not listed these stones in rows as they too are scattered through out the fenced area.
