|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
To reach the Adams Cemetery, go about one mile southwest of Burkett on State Highway 206 and turn right (west) onto a dirt road, then immediately take the dirt road to the right (north). Continue on this road for about one and one-half miles. Soon after crossing the Pecan Bayou and winding up the north bank, take the first dirt lane to the left and the cemetery will be a short distance on the right.
In 1898, D. M. Adams gave 1.26 acres to be used as a cemetery to the trustees of the Burkett and Live Oak communities (Coleman County deed records - Volume 39, page 499). The cemetery is fenced and well-maintained in grave area. Some of fenced area is overgrown, but probably does not contain graves. There is a gate at the southeast corner. Reading began in the southeast part. Graves were read by rows, in a snake fashion, possibly separating family plots.
