I was driving down one of the senderos close to the Brazos on the ranch, and I spotted something in the brush. I got out and found this:

Lucy wife of John Moore 1864-1891

We had an old cemetery on our old quail lease in Oklahoma. Was always a covey of quail close by too. I think the most recent burial was 1891 iirc.

Run across them quite a bit in Tennessee and Alabama. Lots of forgotten family cemeteries in these here woods.

We've got one in a corner of our lease as well, buried 1885 or so. Last year we took the time to re-stack the rock wall around the grave, and clear all the brush out. Golden rule and all.

I went back that evening and cleaned up the site and added some color. Maybe now she won't haunt me.
