From the city of Burnet go south on hwy 281. You will see the Burnet airport on the right. Take a right at the airport. When you turn into the airport you will see the cemetery on right it has a rock wall around it and a historical marker.
Magill cemetery is not in use any more. The city of Burnet takes great care of the cemetery. The historical marker inscription is at the end of this listing.
This is the complete list of all graves that has tombstones, only one unknown grave. I surveyed this cemetery on Jul 27, 2002.
