aka Pleasant Ridge Cemetery, Tick Ridge Cemetery.
T40, R24, S2 - Leesville Township; 591 SE 1151 Rd, Tightwad, Henry County MO.

Directions: Three miles south of Tightwad on SE 1151. Near end of road, where it bends left and heads down to Truman Lake, an old lane leads off to the right into the woods. Follow lane a short distance, staying to right.

Landowner: US Government, Corp of Engineers. Public property.

Condition: Overgrown and in ruins with no fencing or protection. A large tree had fallen on one side of the cemetery. It is unlikely any stones will remain intact if the cemetery remains part of the Corps grounds. The cemetery was indexed in March 1996 by Henry Co. co-ordinator Linda Everhart with guides Linda and Lisa Faukenberry and mapped by Orren Molder.

History: In 1895 the land where this cemetery is located was owned by the state and a school house was located just south of it. D.L. Molder and Overton Wills had property to the south and southwest. To the north was the Parks settlement, consisting of the Parks and Logan families, along with the Park's Chapel Church and cemetery. About 1/2 mile southwest was a saw and grist mill on the Grand River. In 1910 nearly all of section 2, and most of the land south to the river, was owned by John W. Penland. Some neighboring lands were owned by James B. Molder, Samuel P. Molder and R. L. Molder. It is not known when this cemetery was established or how many other unmarked graves may exist. The first known burial was a Wills infant in 1901.
