Location: 1 mile north of Stevenson, AL on hwy 117 (coming in from the east, cross railroad tracks, turn left, go one mile) on the righthand side of the road. You will see a white house with sandstone colored brick on the lower half . This belonged to Evelyn Thomas in 1988; husband Aubrey who had recently died had tried to keep the cemetery cleared off during his lifetime. The cemetery is to the left of the house, slightly closer to the road and on the top of a small hill. This home was originally the "Burch homeplace" of Napolean and Elizabeth Burch where my grandmother, Estelle Brown was born. Surveyed 28 Oct 1988 by Lana Floyd, a Burch descendantBlake, Fannie B., b.

Burch descendants desparately need to contribute to a fund for the upkeep of this cemetery or have a volunteer day to clean it up on a regular basis. Perhaps some of the local Scout units would take this on as a project. In 1988, some of the stones had been vandalized and the cemetery was rapidly being overcovered with native plant growth. Anyone going to the cemetery, for the purpose of clean up, are advised to take chain saws, axes, bush whackers, pruning shears and saws, rakes, hoes, shovels, bug repellant, fire ant poison (they are in this part of AL also), work gloves, drinking water, soft drinks and food, toilet paper, and trash bags.
