About Graveyard Rabbit of South Denton County

Terry Thornton of The Graveyard Rabbit and The Graveyard Rabbit of Hill Country began this association in mid-October 2008 and invited other genea-bloggers to participate. For becoming a member prior to the end of October, I am considered a “charter” member. This blog will cover the following topics (as defined by The Graveyard Rabbit”):

  1. Devoted exclusively to articles about cemeteries, grave markers, burial customs, the study of cemeteries, transcriptions of tombstones, or the preservation of cemeteries.
  2. Should be registered as a member of The Association of Graveyard Rabbits.
  3. The geographic location should be limited.
  4. Content should be on subject and photographs are encouraged.

Since I have lived in Southern Denton County for the better part of almost 30 years, I feel that this would be a good area for me to cover without feeling too overwhelmed.  Although several cemeteries and headstones within this area have been photographed or transcribed for other genealogical purposes and websites, I hope to bring a fresh perspective and perhaps educate others.

I encourage comments and questions.  In-depth genealogical questions or research needed in Southern Denton County should be directed through my Genealogy Blog – All My Branches Genealogy. I will do my best to respond to any inquiries, comments, questions or criticisms.

This is just what we both need — a new blog I just started one at http://graveyardrabbitofcentralohio.wordpress.com

I have really enjoyed reading your blog since joining the GYR association! (I am in Central Florida.) Not too long ago, I discovered some of my ancestors lived in Denton County, but I don’t know if it was in the southern part or not! Have you ever heard of a place called “Pilot Point?” According to some notes received from a distant cousin, a bunch of our family are buried there. Keep up the good work!

I live in Denton county and was trying to research a headstone which lead me to your blog. I am surprised to see that such an association exists. I have had this hobby of taking digital pictures of headstones and recently came upon an unmarked grave. The tombstone is engraved with a dove above a lamb and I suspect the grave is that of a child. I took this picture at the Shiloh cemetery of Shady Shores, TX. There should be a link with this email if you’d like to see it. Thanks for the blog also I will bookmark it for future reference.

Just came across your interesting site here. I live in SE Denton County and have inventoried/photographed one cemetery here. However, I’ve been working with the cemeteries of Bell County for about ten years. It’s and enjoyable and intriguing hobby when I can find time for it.

I just found this blog, I have to say that I know very little of blogs. I have been visiting cemeteries on our travel in the trailer, I have put over 4000 pictures on findagrave. I live in Richland Hills TEXAS just east of FORT WORTH, If this blog is still active I would be interested in hearing more about this graveyardrabbit thing . We (my wife and I) have been to maybe 50-60 different cemeteries in our travel, always lookin for more little grave yards along the way.

unfortunately, do to my schedule and my other websites, I’ve been unable to keep this blog current or travel to other cemeteries that I wanted to document. Anyone can be part of the graveyard rabbit blogs – if you go to my “about” page, there is information there & feel free to start your own blog & upload your own photos & information. I do know of some others who are documenting cemeteries in the Tarrant county area. Thanks for submitting to find a grave – most genealogists I know also use that website – as do I & I want to thank anyone who provides such a wonderful service to others.
