By happy coincidence, I met Dee Kincke at a talk with the Daughters of the American Revolution in Georgetown, Texas. Dee has ties to the Kyle Cemetery, home of the Kyle Hanging Oak. A photographer, she tells us that the area at the south side of the cemetery with the small gate which leads into a wooded area has always been known to her great grandmother as the area where the slaves were buried. Those persons moved to the area as slaves of early settlers of Kyle. Some buried there also bear the last name of Kyle.
Cemeteries hold more than the deceased. Sometimes they hold friendships together.
