Burchett Cemetery

Does anyone know anything about this little cemetery?

Janice sent this information in an e-mail.


I am not sure it is in Duval County; however, I believe it is.  Our family referred to it as the Burchett Family Cemetary.  It is now owned by a Garza (I think).  It was the original home place of Sterling Burchett (he being my grgrgrandfather) and his family.  I remember being there when we buried my great Uncle Banyon Burchett in 1971 or 1972. It is a small plot, only has Sterling, his wife, Mary, and 3 to maybe 5 of his children.  At the time of Uncle Banyon's burial the old farmhouse was not far from it. Also, the house my grandfather and grandmother lived in after they were married until the time it was sold (sometime after 1945) was close by. Other than that and it being somewhere south of San Diego, Texas; I can't recall very much.


I found the following in the 1920 Duval Co. census.

Sterling - age 69 b. VA
Mary H. - age 66 b. VA
Dewitt - Son age 29 b. TX married
John - Son age 24 single
Frankie - daughter-in-law   age 33  b. TX  married
