Pleasant Township, Sec 23

Contributed by Jackie Owen, Mar 26, 2002 [edjackieowen@wmconnect.com]. Total records = 113.

This cemetery is located east of Pleasant, IN, at the intersection of Hwy. 250 and Bennington Road on the east side.

SS=Same Stone

Names marked with an * were on the list that Wanda Morforddid in the 1980's but I couldn't find when I was there

There were 3 stones that were not readable when I was there, that would account for the 3 names I couldn't find.

I surveyed this cemetery Nov 01, 2000.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
