Seems like a lot of space here, though some plots may be filled with no marker.  I've seen a number of temporary markers there years after the burial.  I stopped by to register the visit - the photos are from an earlier stop.

Thankfully, some road maintenance being done did not result in the cemetery entrance sign being taken down.  It's still standing guard.

Cemeteries hold fascination for history buffs and family genealogists, and this book is a valuable guide for both. It provides information about the more well-known gravesites, such as Sam Houston’s at Huntsville’s Oakwood Cemetery, but also the less well-known locations. Two graves in unassuming cemeteries are the final resting places of two of the greatest blues artists of all time: “Blind” Lemon Jefferson in Wortham, Texas, and Huddie “Leadbelly” Ledbetter in Mooringsport, Louisiana. Do you know where Hoss Cartwright is buried? The authors of this handy guidebook do.
