Photographer's Note

After our visit to the abandoned Booth School last week, we found out that Freeman Irby Booth's grave is 10 miles away at Morton Cemetery, locates at 401 N. 2nd Street, Richmond, TX 77469.

Exactly 82 years and half after he passed away, we visited Section RMC1-2, Lot 7B, Space 3 where he was buried to the left of his wife within Booth Family Lot. His simple tombstone reads:

FREEMAN IRBY BOOTH
SEPT 7, 1866
AUG 28, 1931

I am leaving the related info here, just in case someone will try to track down personal path of the person who built a school in 1908 that has been abandoned since 1947.

About the school in his name that had been abandoned, here are the links:
