Description
Four headstones representing the Burk family. Internments in 1858, 1861,1874 and 1876.

I also included a Streetview screen capture to show what the state of this family plot was in July, 2009. It's amazing what some caring folks can do when they get together to help restore history.

Property value plummets next to a cemetery, and that's good news for us.

That's certainly would I would do if I lived close to one, thanks for sharing. They are usually in great locations and some eventually turning into million dollar properties[seaside etc.].
