ROOKER CEMETERY

ROOKER CEMETERY

The original list of burials made by the Burlington Historical Society in this cemetery were recorded on Aug. 4, 1929 from information on the tombstones on that date. Two additional names were added to this list after Mrs. Ione Chevalier of Burlington visited this cemetery in May, 1981. If there were other burials, they were not recorded in 1929 or 1981 due to possible destruction of the tombstones before 1929 or because no tombstone had ever been erected to identify the graves.
