Regrettably this cemetery was extensively vandalized approximately 20-25
years ago and the above markers are all that remain of the approximately 75
to 100 original graves. Over the years the mounds of the graves have worn
down to where the entire cemetery is just a flat field with no indication
of there ever being more graves than are currently marked. This is a
private cemetery with no "official" protection and upkeep. The surrounding
residents and relatives of those buried there keep the cemetery very clean
and nice but could not prevent the vandalism nor the eventual disappearance
of the other graves.

Many of the graves in this cemetery were originally in the Old Darian
Cemetery on what is now Fort Rucker Army Reservation. Use of the old
Darian Church was discontinued in the early 1900s and all graves were
moved to Pleasant Hill Cemetery in 1942 in Ozark. There are MANY old
unmarked graves in this cemetery, leading one to believe that many of the
graves that were moved from Darian were never marked again once moved to
Pleasant Hill. Pleasant Hill Church may have burial records of those
individuals that were moved from Darian and are not marked by tombstones.
