This cemetery is behind the Pleasant Hill Baptist Church and they have both served the needs of the local Afro-American population for about a century. It is located in the southwest quadrant of Red River County, Texas. From the intersection of Hwy 82 and FM 909 in Clarksville, take FM 909 south 6.2 miles and the cemetery is on the right. A deed dated 3 Jul 1911 and filed for record on 4 Jul 1911 in Book CH Vol 69 Page 472 conveys 5 acres in the William Bruton survey from C. F. Wilson et ux to Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church. The oldest marked burial is that of Leon Jackson who died on 31 Dec 1931. This cemetery was surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 20 Jan 1999. We visited the site again on 7 Dec 2003 and took the GPS readings. We also did a re-walk of the cemetery adding new burials and noting marker changes. As of 31 Dec 2004 this cemetery had 161 documented burials.
