|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This Cemetery is locally known as the 'Moore Cemetery'. It was named the 'Sally Burns Cemetery' by the folks doing the WPA cemetery surveys in the 1930's.
There is NO SIGN on Sally Burns Road indicating that a cemetery is present. The location is south of White Pike (County Road 12). If you go north over the Rock Creek Bridge, toward White Pike Road, you've gone too far. The cemetery is in a fenced off, cleared area about two city blocks as you walk through the woods. There is no place off the road to park your vehicle, unless you park near an opening on the opposite side of the road. A decision to leave the cemetery UNMARKED is based on the hope that it won't be vandalized. It has remained intact for 150 years. The only (sad) change made has been the removal of stones indicating unmarked graves.
There is a process in progress to have the Cemetery named as an official historical site!
