East from Royal City on highway 28, go approximately 7 1/2 miles and turn north on highway 26 (aka A), After 3 1/2 miles, turn East on 12 SE for one mile, then north on B SE for one mile, Cemetery located on the west side of the road.

The cemetery was organized in 1912 as Pleasant Valley Cemetery. The following is from the plaque at the cemetery, "Pioneer Memorial Cemetery"

"This cemetery was dedicated in 1912 by the Homesteaders who first settled in this area, These pioneers cleared the land of sagebrush and dry farmed, The spring winds and drouth of those early days forced many of the families to leave, and many of their loved ones were left behind here, Rededicated by the member of the Pleasant Valley Cemetery Association in 1973"

The cemetery is about 4 acres in size with graves in a cleared area of 1 1/2 acres, The cemetery is cleaned and cared for by the Cemetery Association. As of now, no grass, some sage brush.

There are some unmarked graves noted with funeral home markers that are unreadable, at least two wooden markers unreadable, plastic flowers, empty glass jars in the ground, etc. I walked this cemetery 11 Apr 2001. Any misspelling and wrong dates, please let me know.
