This cemetery, Burton Gap, is West of Mitchell and is located in a field off of Hwy. 60 along the tree line that runs along the railroad track. it was near the family home. This cemetery is no longer in use, burials stopped when the railroad came. The family then started burying their dead in the "new family cemetery" located just 3/4 of a mile south of the original cemetery. This is known as Burton Cemetery, or the Burton Burial Grounds and is located on Burton Cemetery Road.
This information has been published in numerous newspaper articles and in The History of Lawrence County. The cenotaph was voted on by The Burton Family Association in 1877 and erected in the new family cemetery in 1878.
