All pages will open in a separate document. Each surname listing has the section noted so you will be able to browse the corresponding section listing for surrounding stones.
There are approximately 175 gravestones with inscriptions recording death dates from 1805 to 1868 which predate the 1869 founding of the cemetery. A number of larger monuments seem to record earlier family deaths as a memorial.
Burials after 1996 were not included in the original reading, but were added from cemetery records. A large number of unmarked burials were found in town records. For information on ordering copies of death certificates from the Lenox Town Clerk, see the Introduction
, p. iv.
Recording an entire cemetery of this size is a vast undertaking and Mr. Fraley is due enormous gratitude for accomplishing such a task. Special thanks to:
Wayne Anderson, President
Don Shuler, Vice President
Mary Ann Anderson, Secretary-Treasurer
of the current Board of Directors, for their diligence the past three years correcting records and the enthusiasm they bring to the care of Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
Additions and corrections have been made by Sandra Wilsey through a number of visits to the cemetery, with further verifications from the burial ledger sheets from 1939 - 2014, and town records. Please e-mail
us if you note any other corrections that should be made.
