Yesterday we took the Tarrantula train from Grapevine to the Stockyards and back, and I noticed what appeared to be a few graves not far from the tracks on the West/North West side of the train tracks not far from the Stockyards and I was curious about them. Does anyone know who is buried there? One marker had a fairly recently placed small American flag. A couple of other small makers were close by in the tall grass.

Also, I was curious about a large brick wall that surrounds something not far north of the Stockyards. I couldn't tell from the train exactly where we were, but the brick looked pretty old, at least 8 or 10 feet tall, and had nice detail work.

Any info would be appreciated.

Maybe that's Mitchell Cemetery?

Thanks for the info. I'm sure that is what we saw. Someone has placed a small American Flag near that flat marker. I knew that someone would know something about it!
