Porter Cemetery, also sometimes referred to as Pleasant Hill Cemetery, is about a 1-acre tract.

Martha Porter, a small child, died in 1875.  Her parents buried her in this small area.  Soon, the child of another family in the community died.   She was buried near the Porter child.  This is possibly a Clester child.  A marker reads: Arthur Clester, Feb. 6, 1875, age 11 mo., and 27 days.  It was then Mr. Porter designated this area to be used as a cemetery.
