256    PLEASANT GROVE METHODIST CHURCH

      Location - 4415 Pleasant Grove Church Rd., House Creek Twp.,Wake Co. near the intersection with Millbrook Rd.

      Coordinates: 35d 52m 00.0s N; 78d 42m 30.0s W Click here for Google maps

      Directions: from Hwy. # 70 and Millbrook Rd. (SR 1822), Raleigh, take Millbrook Rd. (only goes north east) about 0.6 mile to a left turn on to Pleasant Grove Church Rd. and go about 0.3 mile to the church and cemetery on the left. There is a large parking lot behind the church. The cemetery is directly behind the parking area.

      The cemetery and church are on 2 acres. There is room for more burials. The cemetery is well kept and somewhat unusual in that it has a "white section" and to the right of that a "black section", a relic of the past where "Blacks, free, or slave" were buried. It, too, is meticulously neat and cared for, through the work of a Boy Scout Troop. A plaque sits under the black metal trellis marking the entrance: "Slave and Free Black Cemetery Restoration Eagle Project of Joseph Sawyers 1997". Unfortunately there are no names on the graves in the black section so all names listed below are from the "white" section.
