Moore Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
Mount Olivet Cemetery.
Oakwood Cemetery. Note that in 1914 the city hired a man named “Graves” as sexton of Pioneers Rest Cemetery.
Parker Memorial Cemetery in Grapevine.
Rose Hill Cemetery. (Oh, come on. Admit it: You’ve had the fantasy, right?)
And now a few words from cemeteries around the state (photos from Find A Grave):

And now a few words from cemeteries out of state, north of the border, and across the oceans (photos from Find A Grave):

Sand Lake, Wisconsin. “Andrew Headstone,” born 1841, died 1897.
Peterborough, England. For all you peckish zombies.
Crestwood, Missouri. Speaking of zombies, I would suspect a “May B. Zombie” tombstone to be a gag (ala “Nick Beef”) if not for the obvious age of this stone. The birth date seems to be 1903 or 1908. The surname Zombie is rare in North America but more common in Africa.
