I Googled Burrow's Hollow Burying Ground and came up with this site-

If you go to the bottom of the page click on
"Back to the Stocker Centennial History of Susquehanna County index page"

and you can choose which page to read,I found alot of info on my own Tiffany/Sweet/
Parmenter lineage.
Another search only turned up a listing for a Gibson Methodist Parsonage.Sorry,nothing on a "new name or directions".
I hope this is of help to you.I have a copy of the History of Susquehanna County Pennsylvania by Emily Blackman and found it had LESS info than what I found listed at the above site!

BURIAL-PLACES.-Burrows' Hollow Burylng-ground. -Elias Van Winkle's child, aged ahout fifteen, was the first person buried in the yard. Mr. Skyrin agreed to give ground for a burial-place. He gave eight rods on the road and as far back as it was suitable to bury, which is about fifteen rods. In 1842, when it was fenced, Mr. Roper, who then owned adjoining, gave three rods more; after that Urbane Burrows set off more laud for the same purpose. There are many buries in the yard-four Revolutionary soldiers- Robert Chandler, Nathaniel Claflin, Consider Fuller and Elias Van Winkle; War of 1812-Jason Fargo, John Guard and Moses Chamberlain.
