Concrete Markers

These mysterious concrete markers can be found in several spots around the cemetery. In some cases they appear as corners of family plot boundaries. Elsewhere they appear to bear illegible markings of some sort for individual burials. [San Marcos - Blanco Cemetery]

Tiny plot just off the trail
McRae Family Cemetery - 8/6/2017  [View Log Page]

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.

Progress keeps closing in

I stopped by for a visit to make my log official.  Photos here are from a previous visit.  One my original visit a long time ago there was no auto dealer next door.  Though things are more closed in the cemetery seemed better kept.  Perhaps the local businesses have a reason to help keep things clean?
