Mount Pleasant Cemetery
(Marion Co, Warren Twp)
10505 East Brookville Road
Indianapolis, IN
GSMC Code: WR005     WPA Code: No. 111
SHAARD# CR-49-84.
     Mount Pleasant Cemetery, also called Pleasant View Cemetery, is on the site of the old Mount Pleasant Methodist Church on the south side of Brookville Road (U.S. 52), ¼ mile east of Bade Road in Warren Township. The church grounds, including about 2 acres of ground, are grown up in briars, brush, and weeds.  Earliest known burial was 1857 and the last were 1in 912. 
     The cemetery is maintained by the Warren Township Trustee.  Since 2008, they have cleaned up the cemetery and restored several markers. 
     The burials we show are from a 1945 list (see "Cemeteries page" below), from verified information on Find A Grave, from "The History of Warren Township" (published by Warren Central HS), from burial information provided by the Warren Township Trustee Office and from a visit to the cemetery in June 2012.  
     Note regarding the 1945 Dixon list: Here is a good example of how either readings or transcriptions can be erroneous. This list refers five "Washan" burials which are instead "Washam".  A further comparison shows a reading of "Jemina Washan" while the stone clearly reads "Jemima Washam".  You can never be too careful.
