Burr Cemetery began burials about 1785. We are not exactly sure when the first burial was in Burr, however the first recorded burial was in 1785.
The Burr Family owned the land that Burr Cemetery now occupies. The Burr’s owned a Green House next to the cemetery, they also sold various goods and services.
The Griffins later added land to the cemetery to make it the 6.5 acres that is currently in use.
Wid Griffin acted as caretaker for many years, in the 1980’s Donald Stilkey became Caretaker and later Superintendent.
In 2007 the opportunity arose to purchase additional land and add a Crematory to the cemetery. which will help secure the care of Burr Cemetery.
