Fleming Burk Cemetery

Tombstone inscriptions found in the Fleming Burk family cemetery at Elk Garden, Russell Co., VA and copied by Ed Burke, 1977. Located off Rt. 80 in the Elk Garden area of Russell Co. From Lebanon, take Rt. 19 east out of town to Rt. 80. Turn right (south) on Rt. 80. Follow Rt. 80 until you pass Rt. 656 on the right. Just after passing Rt. 656, as the road starts to bend to the right, there will be a trail off the left side of the road. Follow this trail for about 1 mile to cemetery. As a note, the first two names below, Leah & Henry Burk are buried in what was referred to in their father Archer Burks will as the Martin Cem. Archer expressed a desire in the will to also be buried there. Two additional children of Archer Burk are probably buried there in either unmarked or unreadable graves. They are Rebecca E. Burk b. 31 Oct 1847 d. 19 Feb 1849 and Sarah Burk b. 05 Nov 1856 d. 18 Sep 1863.
