This Cemetery is also known as ISRAEL BURNS FAMILY CEMETERY!

There's only four identified graves in this cemetery, and those are of the Israel Burns family. There's several rocks which probably indicate burials, but there's no names on any of the stones.

The following was graciously contributed by Dorothy Higginbottom Russell of Cherokee, Colbert County, Alabama:
Location is SE4 NE4, Sec 24m T5S, R15W. From US72, take Colbert Co 21 south to the junction with Colbert Co 12 (which is also White Pike Road). Follow Colbert Co 12 to the point where the main TVA power line crosses the road. The cemetery is on the left at the top of the highest bank just before the power line crosses the road. The quarter section in which this cemetery is located was purchased from the US Government by Israel Burns on 22 July 1842; he then purchased the SE 4 of Sec 24 on 13 April 1846.
