I'm dying to go to our two local cemeteries (figuratively, not literally). Oakwood and Barron Cemetery both have some of the oldest grave sites in Tyler. I'm going to visit both of them sometime this week or next and will post about it when I do.
I wanted to share some photos my husband took while on a fishing trip in Jefferson, TX (also on my wish list of places to see).
Update: My husband told me the stories about these graves. Don't quote us as they are just heresay.

And we buried together... forever.
