Stories Beneath the Stones
Stories Beneath the Stones, The Hidden History of a Small Texas Town, Told Through the Lives of Those Buried in the City Cemetery
History here is literally buried--under the headstones of Hillcrest Cemetery in the center of Canton, Texas. Authors Lawrence O. Greer and Benja Pittman Mize have unearthed it, however, and present a quick biography of every person buried in the graveyard, from the mid-1800s on. Hundreds of biographies, of farmers and outlaws, teachers and preachers, women and men, tell the story of a small Texas community over more than a century of struggle and success.
Based on years of research, this book is a must-read for family and history researchers. Also recommended for readers looking for gripping, chilling, and inspiring true stories.
