Pleasant View Cemetery lies about 2 mile northeast of Ford, WA, just east of Hwy #231, on Happy Hill Rd. When you reach Happy Hill Road take a right and very soon take a left turn up the hill. You will see it nestled in a clearing amid evergreen trees straight ahead.

This was first known as the LaPray Cemetery. The Joseph LaPray family settled this valley, started a freight company and built the LaPray bridge, across the Spokane River. Joseph divided the land into farms for his 3 sons as well as designating land for a cemetery. Some records refer to it as Walker Prairie Cemetery.

It is not a perpetual care cemetery, but is taken care of by the Pleasant View Cemetery Association, who at designated times during the year, meet and see to it's care, plus families with loved ones buried here give special attention to those graves. I could not find out when the name of the cemetery was changed.

I found it rather interesting the way the various graves were laid out on the west side of the cemetery, facing the edge of the hill. It was as if the resting were laid there to view the beautiful Chamokane and Rail Creeks as they join in the valley below.

I visited this cemetery May 20, 1999, doing a complete inventory. There were at least 12 unknown burial spots. This includes all existing and legible stones and markers up to that date, with a few later additions. I revisited and read this on Jun 10, 2007 using a digital camera. Entries followed by and asterisk * were either illegible, I missed finding it or there was no existing stone this time.
