|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Old Pleasantville Cemetery is located in Sec 17, T5N, R3E in Owen Twp, Jackson Co., IN. The cemetery is overgrown with poison ivy and most stones are on the ground or buried.
On April 9, 2010, My friend, Bonnie and I followed the directions (& map) and found the cemetery. We both photographed all stones we found and catalogued the information. This is a good photo of part of the cemetery, taken by my friend, Bonnie. We did not find an entrance. There probably was one at some time. It does still have poison ivy, along with Mayapples, Jack-in-the-pulpits and other wild flowers. It was obvious to us that someone had cleared off most of the mess and repaired some of the stones within the past 5-6 years. It is quite pretty, considering how remote it is.
