This is a scan of the NGS Eddyville Quadrangle with Dycusburg at the bottom left. The red square is the location of the cabin and the blue square represents the cemetery.

Pinkneyville is about 2 miles to the south and west of this location. Pinkneyville is the birthplace of Duke Harrison Burklow and residence of James Thomas Burklow. This generation of Burklow's lived in that area in the late 1800s through the early 1900s. The map shows an unimproved road going toward the river and on to Pinkneyville. Evidence of this road was still visible during my visit in the 1990s
