1. Fort Graham Cemetery
is on a hill overlooking the Brazos River that is now part of Lake Whitney. None of the old Fort is remaining, but there is a historical marker (to be found) down the hill from the cemetery on the spot where the old Fort once stood. Many of the graves are marked with rocks and nothing else. Also, many have faded with time and were hard to read. (by Access Genealogy.com)
