Belote Cemetery

The Belote Cemetery contains the remains of relatives of Burke pioneer farmer and merchant Harvey Belote. Harvey Belote himself was buried at Ryan Chapel.

His first wife Nannie Guinn Belote is buried at the Belote Cemetery. Others in the family included Jeremiah T. Warner, and his daughter Birdie Ellis Warner Spivey, daughter of Jeremiah and Mary Campbell Glass Warner, a cousin of Harvey Belote. Birdie Warner married Sherwood Spivey, early Burke physician, when his first wife Laura Arrington died. Two of their children, including Owen Spivey, are buried there also.
