I visited the cemetery for the first time w/grandparents, Melvin & Lillie Ward. Melvin's baby sister Mamie is buried here. He remembers as a small child-the funeral and that his mother fainted and was taken to a nearby house. He and my brother placed a headstone on her grave 70 yrs, after her death.
He had a very interesting story about how his Uncle Day Fessler was murdered by a jealous husband.
Many more stories and memories...

I was happy to see what you are doing in Mills County. There is information that I have to add if you wouldn't mind, and some corrections.

Edward T Hadox, is actually John Edward T Haddox, son of Alexander Haddox and Elizabeth Parker. Elizabeth is the sister of William Edward Parker.

David Roe is actually David Rae. He is the son of David Rae, son of A W Rae and Lucy Frazier, and Esther Parker, daughter of Wm Edward and Mary D Mollie Parker. She died a week after the birth of David.

I would enjoy any contact from others searching the Haddox and Parker families.

Thank you for all the work your group is doing.

I visited Pleasant Grove in December 2010. I was very impressed with how well the cemetary looked. By chance when I was visiting the cemetary, Mr. and Mrs. Derrick arrived there. I didn't know who they were at first, but we met; and I found out she attended school along with my dad. She and her husband both knew my grandparents (the Roach's) for many years, who lived on a farm nearby in the 70's. I felt truly blessed to meet both of them, they were both very friendly and hospitable to us. My greatgrand parents are both buried here, along with two great uncles and a great aunt.

Made a trip to visit my mother and fathers graves in Goldthwaite cemetery over labor day weekend. I could not ever recall having been to the Pleasant Grove cemeteray. But I knew my G Grandparents were there. Did not know what condition the cemetary might be in or if we could even locate it. What a pleasant surprise. The cemetery is very well maintained a memorial donation will be forthcoming. Thank you for your efforts! Please add me to any mailing list.

Comments:
I felt I neglected to mention Leonard Hall who grew up with my grandmother, Mildred Laura Geddes Langford (she married Albert Olen Langford, think he was from Goldthwaite. Leonard Hall escorted me to Pleasant Grove on 1 or 2 occasions before his death. He showed me the Blue Hole where there was great testifying, baptisms, swimming and Pic nics. He showed me the area where the Halls lived and said he worked as a helper for my great GF, John Geddes. I am forever grateful to him and his relatives (Leonard's sister?) who sent a picture of my Gram when she was a kid. It was the earliest photo of her yet.

I really appreciated all the great stories. If anyone knows any stories or facts of interest. Please contact me at roberta6469@msn.com
Thank you!

This past week I found out that my great grandparents, Samuel D. and Laller Eula Carson are buried in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery in Mill County, Texas. I plan on being in that area in a week or so and plan to come by and take pictures. Thank you so much for the work you have done on the information listed here. I'm still researching the cemetery where Samuel D. Carson's mother, Nan Wilke, is buried as well as information about his father and Laller Eula's parents. I'm assuming her maiden name was Featherston. Keep up the good work.
