Cemetery notes and/or description:
Site of an old chapel, and you will sometimes see "Arneys Chapel" on early 20th century death certificates referring to this cemetery. There is another Arneys Chapel in present-day Burke County, so care must be taken to place burials in the correct one.

Arney Cemetery is in the community of Penelope in Burke County. The county line bisects the intersection of Main Avenue and 34th Street; the cemetery is west of it.

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.
