To reach this cemetery from Hickory from PA Route 50 turn onto Wabash Avenue (center of town). The cemetery is on the right, next to the old Hickory Elementary School.
The Mount Pleasant Cemetery was established by the Mount Pleasant United Presbyterian Church sometime between 1790 and 1800 as a graveyard beside the church. (The United Presbyterian churches were also called Seceder Churches.) After mergers of the church with other Presbyterian churches, in June of 1969, it was agreed that title to this cemetery be turned over to the Mount Prospect Cemetery Association. The final deed transfer is dated Sep 01, 1971, so now title, as well as the responsibility for the maintenance of this graveyard rests with the Mount Prospect Cemetery Association.
I completed this transcription on Dec 12, 2009, using current sexton files as well as old records found in a book by A.D. White and data collected by the DAR found in the genealogy section of the Washington PA library.
