On Apr. 6, 1869, J. B. Silverwood and Ellen W. Silverwood acknowledged that the plat was made with their consent and in accordance with their desire, that they caused the survey to be made, that the plot of land was to be known as Silverwood's Addition to Pleasant Grove Burying Ground to be used for burial purposes only and to be sold in lots as designated on the plat. Notarized by S. A. James, Notary Public. On April 6, 1869, ordered by William McLoud, County Judge, to be recorded.

Headstones

Note: V in the margin before a name designates a veteran. M in the margin before a name designates that there is no stone at the grave, but a funeral home metal marker marks the grave site. No attempt was made to estimate the number of vacant spaces in the rows between the headstones read. Those spaces may represent unused burial plots or burials without headstones.
