It’s Tombstone Tuesday and today’s feature is the burial site of Joseph and Ethel (Abram) Chapple in Golden Gate Cemetery in Houston, Texas.
My maternal grandfather, Joseph Chapple, was born 2 Jun 1902 and died 23 Aug 1966. After the death of his wife, Estella Smith Chapple on 30 Jul 1930, he married Ethel Abrams Thompson nine years later on 19 Jan 1939. Ethel was born 28 Mar 1902 and died 28 Apr 1983.
The Chapple grave site is located in the privately-owned Golden Gate Cemetery, located east of Highway 59 North between Laura Koppe and Weaver in the Oak Park area. The older section of this cemetery was formerly known as Oak Park Cemetery. Today, it is a part of the Paradise Cemetery Group.
