Did you know, there is a Davis Cemetery in the Allandale neighborhood of Austin, TX? Spooky Halloween....

 









Per the DAVIS CEMETARTY website; 

Historic Texas Cemetery. Two signs at the cemetery read: "George W. Davis (ca. 1809-1884), his wife Emiline P. Moore Davis (1810-1872) and family arrived in Texas in 1835. George served in Captain Moseley Baker's company at the battle of San Jacinto while Emiline spent six weeks with the children on the banks of the Sabine River in the Runaway Scrape. Davis received a patent for 3154 acres of his headright in 1841 and built a home north of the cmetery. The earliest dated grave is that of infant John H. Vann who died March 25, 1851, but the burial ground may have been in use as early as 1845. It remains a chronicle of Davis family mebers and neighbors and is cared for by descendants and friends." and "George W. Davis Cemetery. Est. 1845 as a family cemetery later area people. No fee. Closed 1918. App. 100 people are buried here. Part of headright no 15 grant for service at San Jacinto." --- There seems to have been some vandalism; many headstones are broken and patched back together, others lean against trees or are put in piles.

From downtown Austin, Travis County, Texas, go north on TX-1 Loop N (MoPac.) Take the Ranch to Marker Road 2222 Exit and proceed east (right) on 2222. Turn north (left) onto Shoal Creek Boulevard and take the 3rd right onto Cavileer Avenue. Take the first left (north-east) onto Vine Street and George W. Davis Cemetery will be on your right in about 200 feet.

Cardone shared this hot take — and many others — in an  interview with Moneywise  after he prompted an AI chatbot to answer the question: “What are the 10 best markets for investing in rental real estate in America?” The AI Smith response started with: “The best markets for investing in real estate in America can vary depending on factors such as population growth, job opportunities, rental demand, affordability and potential rental income.” Up until that point, Cardone — who performed the task live on camera — was pretty happy with the response.
