Pleasant View Cemetery,
Assumption, Assumption Township, Christian County, Illinois
Pleasant View (Protestant) is joined by the Catholic (St. Mary's) and Protestant (Greenwood) cemeteries in the northwest part of Assumption, Illinois.
The town was originally called Tacusa. In 1856 Elsie Malhoit, a senator from Louisiana, came to Tacusa. He purchased from the Illinois Central Railroad and other owners 30 sections of land. He changed the name of Tacusa to Assumption, gave title for land for a public square, a market place, a Catholic Church and the cemeteries. Over 150 men, women, and children came from Canada and settled the town. (See Christian County Histories: 1880, 1918).
Pleasant View Cemetery is beautiful and well kept.
Pleasant View Cemetery is surrounded by West Second Street, South Larochelle Street, West Third Street and St. Peter Street.
