Pleasant Hill Cemetery. This cemetery is one of several that was removed from the Camp Rucker Reservation Area during World War II. There are many graves in it with only funeral home tags marked "Unknown." Record made June 11,1948 by E.H. Hayes. Contributed by Randy, The Pleasant Hill Cemetery is located about five miles west of Ozark, Alabama on Ozark-Daleville Highway.

Eustus Howard E.H. Hayes was a man who could always be found in a cemetery, even in very hot or very cold, damp weather, writing down cemetery inscriptions. He just loved doing it! Every night, he would take out all of his notes and spend the evening alphabetizing and typing them. It was in this manner that he not only put together a respected and much used cemetery census of Dale County, but those of other Wiregrass counties as well.
