Blanconia Baptist Cemetery
This cemetery lies in Bee County and is included on this site because many early Refugio County settlers are buried here.  Below are links to photographs of all of the tombstones in the cemetery.  The tombstones on each page are alphabetized for easy searching.  If you would like to know if particular graves are close to each, please contact me.  I have numbered them in the order I took the pictures and might be able to give you some assistance.  refugioco@yahoo.com
