Burgess or Morisse Cemetery
Burgess or Morisse is located on Ridge Road about a mile east of Tri-City Road (north of Sharon). The cemetery is on the blacktop. It is on private property in the corner of a field. I am not sure of the current land owner but it use to be the Morisse Family. There are probably more markers as flat pieces of concrete can be found were other tombstones were probably set at one time. Click on the right photo to see the 1892 inscription of the oldest visible headstone.

Earnest W. Burgess died June 10, 1892 - aged 3 years, 2 months, and 25 days.
