Burgess Family Cemetery is located on Right Hand Fork of Grapevine Creek in the Sissonville area. The property was originally purchased by John N. Burgess from Alexander Bruen, 1 Feb 1866.
Take I-77 north from Grapevine Road on the right. Turn and follow until pavement ends. There is an abandoned house on the left and the cemetery is on the hill to the right of the outbuildings, a very short walk. The cemetery is not fenced but appears to be mowed often.
