BURKE / BURK CEMETERY

Oronoko Township, Berrien County, Michigan

Transcribed 1969, Mapped 1970, by Daundra J. Baker.

This is a compilation of persons buried in the cemetery, these are not from headstone readings alone and should not be sited as documentation of such. This listing is from grave markers and the Oronoko township clerk's records. Under the right most column 'Map No.', the word Missing indicates the marker was on site in 1969 and missing at the time of the mapping (1970). This cemetery is located in Section 27, corner of Terre Coupe and Snow Road. The Old Burke School is nearby. It is Cemetery #50 in the 1990 Michigan Cemetery Atlas. It started as a family cemetery, at the death of Rozelle Pennel, dau. of A & AS Pennell, and was laid out on A. Pennell land, according to the 1873 Berrien County Atlas. The cemetery is fenced and well maintained, markers in good condition. Corrections are always welcome. Daundra J. Baker
