Turkey Pen (aka Pleasant Hill) Cemetery
Sharp County,

The area of Turkey Pen Cemetery of today was once a busy and pleasant community. The Church, school and cemetery were named Pleasant Hill. This is a picture of the old Pleasant Hill Church located near where Turkey Pen Cemetery is located. This picture was taken 18 August 1938. Thanks to Fred Sitz we are able to save this picture and other material about the Church, School and cemetery, to our website to remind us of this community. Fred says he is kin to most of the people in the cemetery.
From the deed " Sarah Pinkston widow of G.H. Pinkston for and in cosideration of the sum of One Dollar and other good and valuable Considerations to me paid in hand by W. B. Ratliff, Grover Goff, Alvin Toomey as trustees for th Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church and the members of the M. E.

Church members are privilaged to conduct and hold their services at said church, Pleasant Hill, Sharp County, Arkansas." There are other notations but this is the main part of the agreement of sale.
