Tiny plot just off the trail

I had seen this fenced in area from the road numerous times in the past.  When I went walking through Milburn Park there was no reason not to take a few steps off the trail to get a closer look at what's here.

There's just one legible headstone, for one Daniel McRae, who passed away in 1919.  There are signs of additional burials there, but nothing legible.

Much newer than expected

I was surprised to find no marker earlier than 1982 here.  Given the location and extrance I was expecting some more plots for individuals laid to rest here long before the nearby dam was built.

Traffic noise from 620 is a constant companion, but there's a nice view of the Hill Country off the back of the property.

Still well kept

Stopped by this cemetery since I hadn't logged my visit when I documentated it some time back.  It looks largely the same except the low hanging telephone wire seems to have been fixed.

A guy on a motorcycle stopped to take a picture of Mr. England's consort's grave.  I'm not sure what that was all about!

Small but peaceful

This is one of the smallest cemeteries you'll likely encouter with only four plots.  Stopped by to log the visit since I'd failed to do so when I documented some time back.

Taking wings, in more ways than one

I knew that there was a cemetery at the northern tip of ABIA, but thought that the gates to it were closed except for family members.  I decided to take a closer look after hiking at McKinney Falls State Park.  There are some interesting headstones here and it's surprising quiet and tranquil most of the time when planes are not taking off overhead.
