Search Burnett Family Cemetery (Fort Pickett):

"Located south of the Norfolk and Western Railway and west of Pryor Road (Training Area 11), this family cemetery was one (east) of 2 (see Thompson Cemetery) located in what was Tract C-172 owned by Walter E. Burnett et ux. in 1944 (Table 1 and Figure 1). It is not marked as "relocated" on the 1944 map. Although one cemetery (Thompson) from this tract is included on Godburn's list of cemeteries relocated to Butterwood Church, it is unknown if that listing refers to the eastern or western cemetery in this tract (Godburn 1977: G-9). Since the western cemetery was marked on the 1944 map as relocated and the eastern was not it is probably safe to assume that the western cemetery
is "Thompson" and had its burials moved to Butterwood and that the eastern cemetery (Burnett) burials were left alone. The exact location of this former cemetery has not been identified at the time of this survey."
