Burge Cemetery

Burge Family Cemetery, 7 Nov 1861,"This cemetery is located in the southeast quadrant of Red River County, Texas. GPS COORDINATES: Datum WGS84: 33 Deg 28.902 N, 94 Deg 52.823 W. This is another of the small family cemeteries in RRCo TX, and is located about 200 yards north, northeast of the Boxelder Community Store atop the second small hill. Upon arrival, there were only two markers visible and nothing bearing the Burge name. There were, however, five marker bases visible. With a long point shovel and an hours time, we had dug out four more markers and had a nice family put together. This work was done by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 17 Jan 2000. This site was visited on 12 Apr 2003 for a work day with descendants of the Burge family interred here. We found another marker intact for an infant twin and several pieces of marker to help complete the puzzles. While we were on the site we also took the GPS Coordinates. Upon hearing there was a new chain link fence installed around the area, we visited again on 12 Jan 2004 and photographed all markers."
