Mount Pleasant Churchyard
Fairdealing Washington Twp.
Ripley Co MO

Mount Pleasant Cemetery is a new listing for us.  It is not listed in any of the cemetery books by Thelma McManus.  It is listed as being the Mount Pleasant Churchyard.  A search reveals the Mount Pleasant Churchyard to be where "the Simpson Creek School used to be".

Directions: Northbound on Highway 142 at Doniphan, turn left on Y Highway and go approximately 1 and 3/4 to 2 miles NW on Y Highway to county road 488.  Approximately 1/8th mile past 488 turn right to Mt. Pleasant Church.  This road appears to be a long driveway on the map and I would think there is probably a sign indicating the church if not the cemetery itself (according to the map, it is the second road turning right after county road 488 but it is not marked with a road number on the map).
