Pleasant Grove Cemetery

Transcribed by Vernon and Linda Binger

From Dekalb take Farm Market Rd. 44 south. Go past I 30 to Farm Market Rd. 561. Turn right on first road (CR 4238). Cemetery is 2/10 mile on left through a pipe gate.

There are 71 marked graves. 22 are unreadable or have nothing but fences around them.

This cemetery was in pretty bad shape. Lots of broken and faded stones. Some graves had only a cement blocks for headstones to mark the graves. Pictures of stones are available. Please contact us at Bingerdekalb@aol.com.
