Cemeteries

Gravestones from Pleasant Grove Presbyterian Cemetery – Washington County

Today I share gravestones from Pleasant Grove Presbyterian Cemetery in Washington County.  Many of my relatives are buried there, including the first three in the list below.  Pleasant Grove is located on Hwy 555, north of Springfield.  Take a left at Hwy 438, and an almost immediate left onto the road of the cemetery.  There is a sign to guide you.  This cemetery is just a few miles north of the Linton Cemetery, where my Linton family and extended members are buried.  You could easily visit both in one day.

  1. Thank you for this post, I think you found my Taylors as well as Rogers I have been looking for !!!!!! As well as Janes that I was working on the other night on Ancestry !

  2. If you look closely at the first Thompson gravestone,
    you will see that his name is Stith Thompson, not
    Seth Thompson. Does anyone know the parents of the first Stith
    Thompson who came to Washington County from Virginia or his
    first wife, a Miss Reeves? Please contact me.

Any thoughts?
