Burgess Cemetery is located in Chattanooga in Lookout Valley. From downtown Chattanooga, take Interstate 24 west toward Nashville. Take the Brown’s Ferry Road exit and turn right onto Brown’s Ferry Road. Travel 2.5 miles on Browns Ferry until the paved road ends. There is a gravel road through a gate which is also the entrance to The Classical Riding School. Take this road about 2/10 of a mile until you pass under the power lines and see a path which goes up hill on the right. The cemetery is at the top of the hill in a wooded area. The markers were all relatively new. There may possibly be more graves in this cemetery without markers, however, the undergrowth made it impossible to locate them.
