Pleasant Grove Cemetery

I'm seeking information about Pleasant Grove Cemetery on Lee County Road 401 not far north of Crawford. The cemetery is across the street from Pleasant Grove Baptist Church. What I'm trying to find out is whether there's another part of the cemetery somewhere nearby, with older graves.

I was there Saturday looking for the graves of William H. and Elizabeth Cox Maynor, whose property (later called "The Prince Plantation") is adjacent to the church, but all of the graves I saw were more recent. William Maynor died in 1860 and was said to have been buried "at the old family homestead." This was before Lee County was created. The property was in Russell County at that time. A few years later the Maynor family is said to have given some of their land for the formation of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church. And William and Elizabeth Maynor are supposedly buried in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery. That suggests to me that the land given to the church was where William was already buried -- that his burial place "at the old family homestead" became part of the Pleasant Grove Cemetery.

Any leads on how I might on a future trip be able to find the graves of William (d. 1860) and Elizabeth (d. 1882) will be greatly appreciated!
