|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Site of an old chapel.
Arney Cemetery is in the community of Penelope in Burke County, though it is now being maintained by a church in Longview which is in Catawba County. (The county line bisects the intersection of Main Avenue and 34th Street.)
There are many unmarked graves or graves marked only with stones or blocks. Some of the people buried there have been identified by newspaper accounts or burial records, but exact location of burial may not be known.
Although there are recent burials there, the cemetery was neglected for a long time. It is now being maintained by Bethel Methodist Church.
