      This cemetery has been used as a family burying ground since about 1765 and is near the site of William Johnson's fort. Johnson died in 1765 and is buried nearby. A memorial to him is found in the survey area. Most of the stones are limestone and are eroding badly, even though well-cared for. Many graves are unmarked. The cemetery is adjacent to Mount Pleasant Methodist Church built in 1809 and used until 1929. William Reynolds purchased the property in 1921 and the building was used as a granary until Reynolds donated his farm to Forsyth County for a park in 1951. It is now restored and located adjacent to the Tanglewood Golf Clubhouse.
