  • Fairmount Cemetery by Bob Bowman
    "Cemeteries are not just resting places for the dearly departed; they are also repositories of a community’s history--from its beginning to the present. Such is Fairmount Cemetery, a well-kept graveyard nestled among the pines and oaks of southeastern Sabine County, near the Texas-Louisiana border."

  • I don't know where Columbus City Cemetery is.....never cared. But this great piece on Live Oaks and Dead Folks is fantastic! I will be planning a trip next year just for this fun time. I love the writing style and the information makes it come alive (so to speak). Please keep up the good work! I have found you and plan to read and read and read...then maybe mosey on down the road a piece. - Sandy Knebel, Garland.... by way of Waxahachie, December 17, 2005
