Tombstone Tuesday - James F. Fisher

The community which was once known as Honey Bend now exists only as a cemetery. By the 1880s the little town was settled, taking its name from a very prominent twist in the nearby Brazos River.

At the peak of the communities' life, it boasted of little more than a school and church, but the folks there did manage to form a cemetery association in 1932 to maintain the original graveyard.

It is listed as
a Ghost Town by Texas Excapes: Population 0. It is located in the North Central Texas area of Young County just a few miles south of Graham, off of FM 1287. It is about 37 miles NW of Mineral Wells.

  1. In our debut post of the Rolex Yacht-Master rolex replica uk 116655, I more or less laid out the technical details of what Rolex has presented for us in 2015, and now, after some hands-on time with the new Rolex Yacht-Master, I am going to fill in some details and other insights after Rolex explained what this new rolex replica uk watch is all about. In person, the Rolex Yacht-Master 116655 is just as handsome if not more handsome than it is in Rolex's (typically immaculate) press images. I've always been a fan of mixing gold and the color black - something which you can rolex replica sale find in other Rolex models from time to time if you look for it. What immediately comes to mind is replica watches the Rolesor (two-tone) Rolex Submariner with a gold and steel case and a black dial. The Rolex Yacht-Master in 18k Everose gold (Rolex's own unique alloy of rose gold that does not fade over time) mixed replica watches uk with black ceramic does some interesting things visually and is an extremely different (albeit replica watches sale obviously in the same family) watch as the Rolex Submariner.
