Some of my relatives who lived in the area.

Burgans on my mother Callie Burgan Ledford's side:
Sister Pearl Burgan Miles - Smith
Sister Millie Burgan Green - Smith
Millie had two sons¬óJames and Arthur, and two daughters, Jean Green Short and Fay Green Dean.
Sister Nell Burgan Richardson - Cincinnati, OH. She had three children (Marthella, Joyce and CW)
Brother Lige Burgan - Cawood (two sons Franklin and Cooney)
Brother Henry Burgan - Cawood
Henry had two sons¬óRC and Kenneth, and I believe one daughter named Dixie who also lived in Cawood.
Brothers John Burgan and George Burgan - both lived at Cranks Creek
Brother Jess Burgan - Jonesville, VA
Brother William Burgan - Chillicothe, OH

Ledfords on my father Caleb Joshua Ledford's side:
First wife was Addie Skidmore and they had three chidren (Ora, Herbert and Mayo)
Daughter Ora Ledford Grabeel - Jonesville, VA. Ora had one daughter, Zelma Grabeel McShane who now lives in Alexander, VA.
Son Herbert Ledford - Rose Hill Virginia. His wife was Lucille and she had a beauty shop next to his barber shop in Rose Hill.
Son Mayo Ledford - Detroit, MI
Sister Mary Ledford Day Smiddy - Cawood. Sons Dennis Day and Bobby Day. I don't think Dennis ever married, but Bobby married and had four or five kids.
Sister Lizzie Ledford Hedrick - Jonesville, VA
Sister Martha Ledford Hedrick - Jonesville, VA
Sister Millie Ledford Skidmore - Spokane, WA
Brother Peter Ledford - Spokane, WA

I was named Millie because both my mother and father had a sister named Millie. That way I was named after someone on both sides of the family.

I have one brother, Caleb Martin Ledford, who lives in Louisville, KY. Before my brother and I came along, my mom had two other babies. The boy was stillborn and the girl was born without a tongue and couldn't nurse, so she died within a week. They are both buried at the George Pope cemetery. Not sure you can still get to that cemetery since the new road went in. I remember the last time I was there around 1990, the road that used to go by our house was no longer there. A new road goes around another way to Martins Fork.

Don't know if any of you old timers will remember any of these people, but it was fun trying to recall them all.:)

Jerry, do you remember Mary and Reuben Smiddy who live up on the hill in Cawood? Their house was right at the end of that rocky road that went up hill from the main highway in Cawood. Later, I think around 1964, my parents (Cale and Callie Ledford) bought Mary's house, and she and Reube moved into a smaller house right across the stream that ran down the hill. I haven't been there in years, but I do remember there was a cemetery around that road on the hill and an elementary school.

I'm taking a trip back the last week of August. I'm sure things will look different now. But, I hope to take lots of pictures of Harlan/Cawood/Smith/Cranks Creek/Martins Fork.
