PLEASANT POINT CEMETERY Johnson County, Texas 1867 - 1967

Made available to The USGenWeb Archives by Margaret R. Bates (

Although this cemetery is located in Johnson County, it has links to Mansfield through the early settlers. The land for the original Pleasant Point cemetery was given by Elizabeth Ann Anderson. The earliest recorded burial was Matilda Bell Hampton (1867 - 1870). The cemetery is located south of Lillian off Farm Road 917. Among the prominent settlers of this community buried here are members of the Casstevens, Ball, Angel, Anderson, Gidley, Goode, Smith, Shaw, and Withers families. Many of their descendants still live in the Mansfield area.

Inscriptions were copied by the Reverend and Mrs. Gordon. Where it is unclear whether maiden names actually appear on the stones, they have been {bracketed.} In addition, there are three of four apparent duplicate listings, with very slight differences. These have been double-checked a gainst the original manuscript, and entered as found. The listings were originally published by the Mansfield Historical Society in 1986. Used with permission.
