RE: Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church Cemetery
Old Town Alexandria has a similar situation. When the original churchyards could handle no more burials, each church went outside the then city limits, south of town, and purchased more land to be used for burials. That conglomerate now has about ten separate cemeteries in it! Gets very confusing for visitors!

RE: Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church Cemetery
Will do! I don't want anyone else to have the hair-pulling experience I had trying to find that church and cemetery as a Methodist Church! I will get right on it!

RE: Mt. Pleasant Church Cemetery
Thank you so much! I am so glad you like the photo.

I think the next project should be to figure a way to get that cemetery to carry double name: Mt. Pleasant Apostolic Center Cemetery/Formerly Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church Cemetery. I wonder if Find A Grave will accept that. Or would we have to post a second cemetery and post all the graves to that one, too?

RE: Mt. Pleasant Church, Oglethorpe County GA
Many, many thanks for this! It is now safely on my computer! I have just come back for a visit to that church building. What a wonderful experience. It was so quiet out there; nothing like Athens or the other cities we visited this year!!

Thanks again, so much for your help!

RE: Calvin Crain
Well, the doctor evidently put the wrong year either at the top or the bottom. Who can say what it really should have been. You are probably right, so just disregard my edit. Have a great day, Brad. I appreciate your help.

William Willis Sr. Died 1851 Upson County Ga Willia cemetery #1
He never used middle name of Jasper. All census records show William Willis and his will and probate records do not use Jasper. His son used it
as a middle name that would be William Jasper Willis. I am on a direct line from them.

Would be happy to share my research.
