This should be a short thread. I visited 4 cemeteries that day but there were only 12 Civil War veterans between them, all Confederate, and 3 of the cemeteries were very small. My son and grandson were at one their friend's parents' lakehouse at Lake Livingston for Easter weekend. It's about an hour and a half drive north from my house and I usually make a daytrip on Saturday when they're there and hang out a few hours with them. My son is not an early riser. If I leave real early I have time to do my thing on the way.
The east side of the lake is in Polk County. The west side of the lake is in San Jacinto County and you pass through San Jacinto County on the way up. The route I take goes through the town of Shepherd, San Jacinto County, Texas and Shepherd Cemetery aka Shepherd City Cemetery was my first stop. The digital record of my first picture shows I arrived at 7:45AM.
