Pioneer Cemetery is located on the corner of 9th Street and Viand St (US 62 North) in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. This memorial garden is the final resting place for some of the earliest landowners in Mason County, West Virginia. Among these early settlers buried at Pioneer Cemetery are two veterans of the American Revolution, John Roush and John Michael Roseberry. In 1985, Dr. Jesse Bennett, Surgeon of 2nd WVA Regiment War of 1812, was re-interred at Pioneer Cemetery along with a 14-foot tall gravestone. Dr. Bennett is not only an important Military figure of the time, but is also credited with the first Caesarean section delivery in the United States of America in 1794.
