        PLEASANT VIEW CEMETERY    

    The Pleasant View cemetery is located on the East side of County Road 3104, which runs to the west of FM 347 just south of the loop of Jacksonville, Texas.  It includes burials that are exclusively of people of African-American descent.  Surrounded by pasture and woods it is nontheless easily accessed.  Full of weeds and fallen trees and brush but appears to have been mowed occasional­ly.  The graves are not in identifiable rows but scattered through­out with many un­marked graves and empty space.  All entries were given the row designa­tor of A.  Marked burials began in 1907. 

This survey was done Oct-1996 by Gaylon White.
