Note that the marker shown in the photo is actually located in Section Q at Restland Cemetery . . . BUT . . . according to his death certificate, as well as the online burials records for the Oak Cliff Cemetery, he was actually buried at Oak Cliff . . . need to try to check the burial records at Restland . . . mayhaps that marker is actually a cenotaph???
