 Denise Kay Moore also transcribed these stones and notes: Over 20 years ago the tombstones were removed so the cemetery could be mowed. At one time these stones were piled along the fence, however today they could not be found. Some of the original stones escaped the degradation as they had long ago fallen and were buried in the ground. The cemetery retains one standing stone to date and others were found buried" She includes records of the Mt Pleasant Baptist Church in her book, which you may purchase from her. Contact

NOTE concerning DAR readings
from Karen Heber: DAR was tasked with certain things to identify.  They normally did not write down children, infants or single individuals.  Their objective was married people and those who served in the military.  That is why many of the readings differ so drastically from other readings done later.  However, some of the DAR representatives “read the whole cemetery”.  Again, they did not use interment or lot records and were subjective at their writings. Please be aware there are dozens of inaccuracies and dis-information from these readings.
