Requiescat in Pace: Famous Texas Resting Places

1 of 27
Memorial Day is just around the corner and we thought we'd share some photos of the graves of local veterans and Texas founding fathers. The shots (shared by our talented Flickr users) show burial sites going back to before the Civil War and up through World War II, including some famous names like Sam Houston and Lyndon B. Johnson, and some not so famous names like Private J. H. Norris, who served with the Confederate States of America and died in 1861.
