DEVELOPERS want to BUILD OVER OUR ANCESTOR's GRAVES (it is "just in a field"- prime location for their warehouse district). Watch the Channell 11 news clip of my Dad's effort's to stand up for "the common man" against BIG DEVELOPERS. Efforts to save the Floyd Homeplace and spare our cemetery further "foot-traffic" and vandalism and ultimate demolition. Ray Road Rebel Historical Value does not matter when it comes to Dallas Southern Sector. No Poltergeists wanted here!

This could be any American Citizen - we must stand up for our rights or lose them. Rebel Wins at Dallas City Hall

Virtual Cemetery ~*~ We have included Absalom virtually into the Floyd-Taylor Cemetery to be near his Mother and
Father in eternal loving memory.
