Everyone knows that Texas is a gigantic state with tons of talented people, some of who have passed away but their bodies have been laid to rest here in the state we call home. My guess is that most if not all of the past celebrities and famous people all decided to be buried here but some could have been decided by family members. Either way it’s interesting to find out about some of the most famous people that have their grave site here in the state of Texas.

I’m sure there are others on the list at Find A Grave that would interest you if you have more time to look around.
