Cemetery is named after Nealie Rexter Ledford who was a local school teacher for the Bee Log area.  This is an active cemetery and well taken care of.


Directions:  Proceed on 19W east towards Burnsville to the stop sign at Bee Log Junction.  Make a right turn and cross over the Cane River. Guys General Store/Gas Station is on the left.  Continue on Little Creek Road which bends sharply to the left.  Proceed on Little Creek Road .9 miles and turn right onto Blair Ridge Road, a gravel road that ascends steeply about 500 feet to the cemetery which is on the right (see left photo).  A four wheel drive vehicle is strongly recommended for this incline.  Otherwise, one should walk up to the cemetery.


NOTE:  This project was in partnership with Julian Fender and Terry Ledford who surveyed the cemetery and supplied all the photos (unless otherwise noted).  Feel free to email me your comments, photos and info.
