Pleasant Hill Cemetery is located in section 23 of Lindley Township in the north-central portion of Mercer County. From Princeton, go west on highway 136 approximately three miles to blacktop P and turn right (north). Go north approximately seven miles to the fifth gravel road to the left. Turn left (west) and go approximately one mile to where the road makes a slight curve to the right. The cemetery is south of the road, well off the roadway and on private property. It is not directly accessable and its condition is unknown. This list of burials has been compiled from various sources including old surveys, family records and census records. The cemetery is very old and this should not be considered a complete list of burials

Subject: Re: Wiggins born in SC 1810-1820

I believe I am the source of the information given below.
I have been researching the family for about 20 years.

I found Wiggins families in Union and Spartansburg, SC, but beyond William as the probable father of Elijah, because of their proximity to John Collins, the known father of Rhoda "Rose", I could not document this.

Elijah and Rhoda were married April 19, 1842 in Christian Co., KY. Louisa Angeline Wiggins married first James Robert Hodges and they were my great grandparents.

Elijah returned to Christian Co., KY to bring John Collins
home with him. They also brought a woman negro slave to be a nurse for John. John Collins, Elijah and Rhoda are buried together in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Lindley Twp., Mercer Co., MO.

Please let me know more of what have on this family. I will check your website.
