Transcription by Jan Murff Melton
stumbled accidentally across a cemetery
I've been looking for for a few years now.
Pleasant Grove Cemetery (and church) at
40053 Vernon Rd., shortly before it intersects
Wolf Rd. It goes across the MS/AL line where
it changes to Aberdeen Rd.
A little sign in front of the church said
1863. I took a picture of it, the church
and the cemetery. It's a Methodist church,
still used, and well kept. Rev. Darrell
Sanderson is the pastor.
I transcribed only a few of the names -
those related to me. My comments of explanation
are in parentheses.
