Kim and I had to attend a wedding reception yesterday a couple of hours northeast of here. On the way home, we stopped at an old cemetery north of  Breckenridge to stretch our legs and found some interesting stuff.

The tombs were the first two graves in the cemetery according to the sign, both infants. Times must have been tough, there are lots of children in all the old graveyards I've visited.

These dates may not seem old compared to some places, but keep in mind, the Comanche and Kiowa indians hadn't been defeated very long, and were still making a few raids from the reservations in Oklahoma.

This was the South Prairie cemetery, probably in Stephens county, but maybe Young county, Texas.
