Old Graves in North Texas

Back in August when the Souls Around the World blog hop was brought up to me, my first thought was I am not a writer, but quickly changed to cool!  Then I started thinking what goes bump in the night?

Vampires, Werewolves, Witches… all these go bump in the night, but I don’t really fear these thanks to paranormal writers making them sexy 🙂 .

So anyway I was wondering what could I contribute? I googled haunted Texas, and got about 2 million results.

I was planning on going to explore Mckinney so I googled Haunted Mckinney.

That is when I learned about Pecan Grove Cemetery.

Pecan Grove is one of the oldest cemeteries in North Texas. In fact many early Texas pioneers, Governors and even gunslingers are buried here. Heroes of the Texas Revolution, veterans of the Mexican War, the War for Southern Independence are also here. It was formally incorporated in 1870, the earliest grave dates from 1854.

I found many graves some very very old. There really were a lot of military men buried here and I also noticed a large Masonic influence.

It was very hot but at the same time there was a very peaceful element to this graveyard.

Everything I read indicated it was a very active for the paranormal influence. I was there during the heat of the day, so maybe the ghosts were smart and stayed out of the heat… but I felt nothing except quiet.

Overall, I am not one for graveyards, as I don’t believe in distrubing final resting places, but this spot is historical, and it is nice to be reminded of those who died for our freedoms.

Until next time.
