Burns Cemetery
Arcola, Webster Co., WV

Directions: Located on McAvoy (Mack Run) in Arcola.  Mack run puts off to the right across Laurel Creek, about six miles below Cowen towards Erbacon, on the Erbacon Road.  Cemetery is on the hill behind the fifth house on the left on Mack Run. Not maintained, in the woods but not much heavy brush.  No road or path going to cemetery, graves are spaced so widely apart that seeing from one grave to the next is difficult.  Appears to be about five graves in total.
