Pleasant Hill Cemetery (Black)

This cemetery is just over the fence from the white section directly behind the Pleasant Hill Baptist church. It is located in the eastern part of the SW1/4 SE1/4 of Section 33, Township 14 South, Range 21 West. It has been badly neglected and looks like regular woods timber at this time. A few large cedar trees are located in the old cemetery, which is about 3/4ths of an acre in size. I believe there are probably many unmarked graves here, since the existing markers are scattered over a large area.
Driving directions: From Willisville, go south toward Waldo for 2.9 miles. Turn left on Rd. No. 6 and go 4/10ths of a mile. Turn right and go 1/10th of a mile to the church and fenced cemetery. This cemetery is directly behind the fenced white section.
