By the time Baldy Whatley was convicted in the drive-by shooting, Jack Barrow already was in prison for murder in an unrelated case.

The lesser-known Barrow brother shot 25-year-old Otis Jenkins through the heart in broad daylight during a petty argument at the Dreamland Cafe on what is now Singleton. He was given 99 years; he died in 1947 and is buried here.

Clyde and his brother, Buck, a fellow gang member, also are here, along with their parents and one sister, Artie A. Keys.

Visitors have left whiskey and coins for the outlaws. But you could also leave flowers for early West Dallas settlers and veterans of the Civil War, World War I and World War II who are buried here.
