Tickridge Cemetery

also known as Pleasant Ridge Cemetery
T40, R24, S2 - Leesville Township
591 SE 1151 Rd, Tightwad, Henry County, Missouri
13 known burials from 1901 to 1959
inactive

Landowner: US Government - contact Orren Molder
Indexed by: Mar 17 1996 by Linda M. Everhart with guides Linda and Lisa Faukenberry; mapped by Orren Molder
Directions: Three miles south of Tightwad on SE 1151. Near end of road, where it bends left and heads down to Truman Lake, an old lane leads off to the right into the woods. Follow lane a short distance, staying to right.
Condition: Overgrown and in ruins with no fencing or protection. A large tree has fallen to one side of the cemetery. I do not expect to find any stones remaining intact in the future if they are allowed to remain on Corps grounds.
History: In 1895 the land where this cemetery is located was owned by the state and a school house was located just south of it. D. L. Molder and Overton Wills had property to the south and southwest. To the north was the Parks settlement, consisting of the Parks and Logan families, along with the Park's Chapel Church and cemetery. About 1/2 mile southwest was a saw and grist mill on the Grand River. In 1910 nearly all of section 2, and most of the land south to the river, was owned by John W. Penland. Some neighboring lands were owned by James B. Molder, S. P. Molder and R. L. Molder. It is not known when this cemetery was established or how many other unmarked graves may exist.
