Comments: This cemetery is quite old and in recent years has been called the Bishop Cemetery. The Mount Pleasant Church used to be located nearby. The church building was dismantled, moved to the nearby Hebron Community, and was rebuilt there. The cemetery appears to be abandoned. There are over 75 graves marked with field stones or indicated by sunken ground. Information in [brackets] is not on the stone.
