Find A Grave ID


Retired for a few years and loving it,but lots of time on my hands. So, family tree research helps fill the void. I'm researching names Ford, Myers,Lane, Rooks, Ruark, Holden, Gober, Standard,Standiford, West, Harned, Cranor.

I ran across this interesting law in the state
of Texas. Chapter 711.041 states, "the public has a right to ingress/egress to all cemeteries
for the purposes of visit". That is also to say that once "a cemetery...ALWAYS a cemetery" (if bodies remain in the ground). Furthermore, Texas law Chapter 711.052 makes violations of
Chapter 711.041 a Class A misdemeanor. Food for
thought as you and I go out to research cemeteries and run into individuals with an attitude.
