mount pleasant Cemetery
George County, Mississippi

Contributed by Jimmy Trussell
 

Leave Lucedale, Mississippi on Old Highway 63 South, you will come to the intersection with the highway 63 by-pass. Here you will take the highway 63 by-pass and go south toward Pascagoula, Mississippi. You will go 4.2 miles and there will be an intersecting road on your right called Mt. Pleasant road. Take this right hand turn and go another 1.8 miles. The Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church and cemetery will be on your left. The cemetery belongs to this church and upkeep is provided by family members of those buried here. There were many unmarked graves in this cemetery along with many temporary markers that had long since faded to the point no information can be salvaged from them. The cemetery was walked by Jimmy Trussell on the 21st of December 2007, and information was taken from all legible temporary markers and headstone inscriptions. There is another Mt. Pleasant cemetery in this area of George County, Mississippi but is totally separate from this one.
