Have you looked on-line lately for your family history? My family has kept wonderful records, but what recently surprised me is how many cemetery and grave sites are being documented through photographs. In the next few months my brother and I hope to visit these sites. But I'm thrilled to have found this so far!
My great (5x) grandfather is documented.
'A Cenotaph' is monument erected in his honor and means he is not interred or buried in this location. I believe I'm coming close to finding his actual gravesite. I know it's a family plot on private property... Riley Mountain next to Honey Creek, Between Llano and Austin. It's just a matter of finding out who the property now belongs to.

Especially sad are the graves of Phoebe and Hiram's daughters that didn't make it to adulthood. Sad and beautiful.
A brief edit: these photos are from cemetery databases, most family records will say what county a loved one passed away in. You can 'google' what cemeteries are in that county. From there you can search individual cemeteries. Most all the sites have a list of the interred. With the help from groups like Boy Scouts and many others now these cemeteries now have photos. Thank you, to those individuals for their hard work!
Here's hoping...you find your own connections today :0)
