Pleasant Valley Cemetery
We recently discovered some historical articles on Dallas County cemeteries. This one concerns Sachse’s Pleaseant Valley Cemetery.
The Pleasant Valley Cemetery is located on Merritt Road in northeast Dallas County, one-quarter mile north of Pleasant Valley Road. A concrete driveway divides the new part from the old part. The old portion consist of all property on the left-hand side (north) of the concrete drive and the new portion consist of all property on the right-hand side.
Merritt Road, which is now situated in front of the cemetery, was originally located at the back of the cemetery. This road served as the dividing line between Mercers Colony and the District of Nacogdoches during the Republic of Texas era.
This pioneer cemetery is positioned on approximately three acres of land which is part of the original W. D. Penny (sometimes spelled Perry) 320 acre survey.
