Pleasant Grove Methodist Cemetery
Glenn Club Drive, Stone Mountain, Georgia
Pleasant Grove Methodist Cemetery
Photos taken October 2006

This cemetery is on Glenn Club Drive, which circles behind the Best Western Hotel off Park Place.  This is just north of Hwy 78 in Gwinnett County.   The oldest graves appear to be from 1879-1880s, with the most recent in the 1950s.  It is a small cemetery with several family plots, including Bracewell, Cheney, Furgerson, Hay, Henderson, Johnson, Minor, Pickens, Wade.
The underbrush is fairly heavy, but most  stones are standing.  Below is a partial transcription.
