I don't normally like cemetery caches, but some of significant beauty, historical, and especially really old ones I actually enjoy.  If you ever go out to Waco, many of the Ashes to Ashes series are nice, as Mr. MB pointed out. 

I went to do the OOPS series, and this one is right before you get to #1.  "Knockin' On Heaven's Door"  Such a pleasant surprise – it was absolutely beautiful at sunrise.  Really cool spot, and neat, very old tombstones and monuments.  GCN0G0.  http://www.geocachin...&log=y&decrypt=.  There is also a letterbox there you will find if you look in the logical spot and don’t pay any attention to what your GPSr is saying.  :crazy2:  It’s mentioned in the logs quite a bit.

The Ashes to Ashes caches are not just Waco as they are all through the countryside stretching to the Fort Worth area.

There is a nice series of cemetery caches in Robertson County, which is north of College Station.

It you are ever driving up to Austin on Hwy 71 "Old Cemetary" (with the 'a') GC23QY6 is between La Grange and Smithville.  Be warned, it is well guarded by chiggers. :tickedoff:

The Ghosts of Texas series has really taken off.  Their are 10 different CO's and a variety of caches and hides in this series.  The 54th cache was published last night.  Most of these are cemeteries that either had no cache in them for some time or never at all.  All of the cemeteries are in older historic cemeteries all around Houston and the surrounding areas.
