Burnett, Wa Cemetery
I have been doing some exploring again in the Carbon River area along Burnett, Wilkeson, and Carbonado. I had heard a rumor of Burnett having a cemetery at one time. I could not find any records of the cemetery existing today or location. I finally ran across a small piece of information I found fascinating.
Ten graves (or more) were exhumed and moved in 1954.
There was an epidemic of tyhpoid and to protect the community
graves were removed. Who and where is unknown.
The small listing below was left at that time.
Mary Barber was a child and the relatives in California had her body exhumed
to be there.
A local resident was paid to upkeep her grave site for many years before she was
moved. He built a picket fence and took flowers annually on her death date.
All stones and graves are gone and this cemetery is now non-existent.
I cannot find any other information on the exhumation. I have seen the movie Poltergeist.........hmmm makes one wonder.
