mount Pleasant Cemetery
George County, Mississippi

Contributed by Jimmy Trussell

Traveling south from Lucedale, Mississippi on Highway 63 south you will go 4.8 tenths of a mile. Here you will come to the intersection with highway 63 four lane by-pass, take a left onto this road. Now continue south for another 6.0 miles, this will be the intersection with Barton/Agricola Road, here you will turn right or west and go 1.5 tenths of a mile. You will see a sign on the left “Mount Pleasant Cemetery”, take a left on the woods road beside the sign. Go strait on this road for .3 tenths of a mile and the cemetery will be in front of you and also to your right. You will need to park on the left hand side as some graves are not visible in the tall grass. There are many unmarked graves, seems no upkeep or maintenance has been done here in quite some time. This cemetery was walked on April 26th and all information was taken from headstone inscriptions and temporary grave markers. I was given permission to walk this cemetery by Mr. Solly Cowan.
