Burks Cemetery

Burks Cemetery is located south of Merryville. Traveling south on LA 389, you will find a sign on the right side of the road leading you to Burks---a small cemetery on top of a knoll surrounded by piney woods. When you turn off LA 389, go
4/10 of a mile and turn right at the first side road; then, it is only 1/10 of a mile to the cemetery.

There is evidence of "lost" graves, and some of the tombstones are very difficult to read. Just outside the gate, a large oak tree has succumbed to age or disease---the stump shows it to have been a giant. All in all, this is a lonely, picturesque little cemetery.
