In Damascus, from the intersection of Highway 27 (Ridge Road) and Bethesda Church Road, turn on Bethesda Church Road and go 2.5 miles west until you hit Purdum Road. Turn on Purdum and go south about .25 miles until you reach 27100 Purdum which is a farm. Turn there and go up the driveway. The cemetery is in a soybean field about 150-200 yards from the driveway.
This is a small neglected cemetery. The day I was up there the owner said that there used to be one of the relatives that came up there and visited each year however she does not come up anymore. His son took me and showed me where the headstones where. They are talking about cleaning this one up next fall afyer the weather cools down. The Gues and Burdettes are buried there. There are probally more graves or headstones but because of the overgrowth you cannot find them.
I walked this cemetery on Jun 15, 2003.
