Our popular Ghosts of Southlake Past cemetery tour drew more than 75 people to two shows on Saturday, Nov. 13, at Lonesome Dove Cemetery. Many thanks to event chair Tamara McMillan and her husband, Ken. Telling the stories of pioneers, history collectors, a Southlake old-timer and a woman who experienced one of the most famous events in Texas history were Southlake Mayor John Huffman and his wife, Elizabeth (Jarrett and Malinda Eads Foster); Karen Jolley and Claire Johnson (sisters Mattie and Missy Lowe); Shawn McCaskill (Jack Cook); and Arden Smith (Malinda Hill). Councilmember Ronell Smith told the cemetery’s history and was the tour guide. Also thanks to sales helper and greeter Martha Davis.
