Cemetery notes and/or description:
The cemetery at Hull, known as the Pleasant Hill cemetery, was laid out 1888 by T. D. Deutsch and Alex Bookwalter, a civil engineer from Kimball. The first person buried there was Mrs. Alfred Calderwood. About 1895 the G.A.R. Post at Hull decided they would like to honor their comrades lying in unknown graves. As times were hard then as now, a monument was out of the question, but nothing daunted the pioneers. A mound of sod about 4 feet in diameter and 3 feet in height was made, decorated with wild flowers in honor of the unknown soldiers. A year or two later a monument of inch boards, painted white with black lettering was made by the members of the post.

This served until the spring of 1933 when contributions by the many people interested made it possible to erect a monument of marble 5 feet high, of regular size and width, gray in color, smooth on the front and rough on 3 sides, bearing the following inscriptions:

"To Our Unknown Soldiers of all Wars; United in Glory, Re-united by Death, 'Tis the Duty of Soldiers, 'Tis the Fate of the Brave".
