Re: Grand Prairie Colored cemetery
In Response To: Re: Grand Prairie Colored cemetery ()
I grew up walking distance from the cemetery. My father purchased an acre of land between ave d and e. We built a home there, and as a child, I either walked or took my bicycle past the cemetery. Have you located the cemetery yet? As a child, I would walk through, reading the stones... wondering about their lives. My father grew up in Grand Prairie prior to enlisting in the US Army in 1956. We returned there in 78, so daddy could retire, and I went through school in the city. I came across this blog because the news reported a vandalism yesterday. There use to not be signage, so I never knew the name. If you still haven't located it, or anyone reading this needs help finding it, I know how to get there by memory. Sits near Mt Creek Lake.
