Graves of the famous (and infamous)

We like cemeteries: the serenity, the history, and seeing the final resting places of famous names. Lee Harvey Oswald (7301 E. Lancaster Ave., Fort Worth. 817-451-3333) If you’re curious about the grave of the (alleged?) presidential assassin, go to Shannon Rose Hill Memorial Park in Fort Worth. The tombstone you'll see is actually a replacement for the original, which was stolen. Stevie Ray Vaughan (6000 S. R.L. Thornton Fwy. 214-371-1336) The revered Oak Cliff guitarist died in a helicopter accident in 1990. A marker in Laurel Land Memorial Park says, “Thank You...for All the Love You Passed Our Way." Bonnie and Clyde (1617 Fort Worth Ave; 9700 Webb Chapel Rd. 214-352-4481) The outlaw duo lived less glamorously than what was reported in the papers during their reign. The obscure, plain grave of Clyde Barrow is at the Western Heights Cemetery, and Bonnie Parker’s marker at Crown Hill Cemetery is slightly more elaborate.
