Burleson Cemetery Records submitted by - Stephanie Gill - Debbie Taylor

Burleson [Burson] Cemetery located 1.8 miles west of Highway 43 on Jute Road, just past Bethel Road. Physical location is Township 25N, R34W, S11. 

The first canvas was done in the summer of 2001 by my self and my daughter.

This cemetery is only divided into 2 sections. We started on the West section in no certain order. There are other graves in the cemetery, but without having any kind of record book to go by, we can only go by visuals. You can tell where some graves are, but there are no stones, markers or headstones.

Most of the cemetery on the West side is covered with Vinca, that is just starting to bloom when we were canvassing.  Probably, most of the people buried here originate from Oklahoma rather than Missouri. I have checked the 1880 and the 1910 census books and don't find but a few of these in the books. In searching the 1910 Peoria, Oklahoma census, we find many!!!

November 21, 2002 - I am revising this list according to an email I received regarding previous canvassing done in this cemetery.

Additions and changes from a canvass done by Colleen Belk and Mary Curry in 1970 will be in blue.
