Texas is a great place to roam cemeteries: there are so many old ones.
Today I went to see the Smithfield Cemetery, North Richland Hills, Texas. Judy from Cemeteries with Texas Ties wrote a story about it a year ago. She did all the research and I just had to visit. There are many interesting graves as these pictures show.
The one on the left is handpainted. Beautiful job. The chickens appear to be folk art, cut out of wood and tole-painted. These are for two different families. What do they mean? Did the people like pigs and chickens? Or were they farmers? Or it has a meaning that only the families knows.
