From Statesboro, go route #24 to Elmer Church; take a dirt road to C.W. Zetterower farm, which is the same as the old Beasley Plantation. Turn right; go abt. 1 mile and on your left, there is an enclosed concrete fence surrounding the cemetrey.

This land was formerly the plantation of David Beasley, who was a prominent public figure in the early 1800's. He was a Tax Collector, Ordinary (now known as Probate Judge), a state legislator. (Memories of Georgia, Vol. II, page 347-348). His son, George Ross Beasley gave the plot for a cemetery on September 2, 1907 (Deed Book page 238), 48th District. George Ross Beasley purchased the plantation from his father May 22, 1867; 950 acres for $1, 200. (Book G, page 166, June 8, 1885). He had 13 children. The youngest of these, Fred D. Beasley, arranged for the concrete fence. It was his widow, Mrs. Fred D. Beasley who contributed this data.
