Millersburg Cemetery, Pleasant Grove Township

After a lot of searching and finally asking a farmer, I found what I have
been told is the Millerburg Cemetery.  It not listed on any of the Des
Moines county web sites.



 



The families that are most represented are Sheppard and Wasson and others.

I've got at least three generations of my family there.

a little over a hundred stones remain with evidence of sevral that are gone.

I took pictures of each stone remaining and plan to transcribe best I can.

Do know if anybody had done work on the cemetery all ready or has it been
forgotten???

It's located about 1 1/2 mile east of the pleasant grove road and danville
road intercetion. use to be known as "Windmill Corner" and then 3/4 of a
mile south down a lane past one house that is locaed about 1/4 down the
lane.

NOTE: Cemetery being transcribed by Dave Christe. Thanks Dave
