    Probably up there as one of the most famous buildings in America.

    Interesting one of the graves. It must have gone by too fast for me to notice on TV but I see that Miss Ellie's includes the name Farlow so they didn't forget Clayton entirely.

    But where's Clayton laid to rest...? Bit harsh putting him somewhere else.

    In the publicity for the TNT show I believe they said he was also buried on Southfork but I don't recall that being verified onscreen.

    I find it very odd that only TNT ever had anyone buried there...sure Bobby was, but that was a dream. Strange that everyone before Ellie & Jock weren't buried there too.

    It's certainly the most famous ranch in television history. That's for sure. :)

    Garrison Southworth should be there.
    I'm not sure how Jock can be there. Did they find a body in the intervening years?

    I think I asked the same question in another thread and the explanation (though not verified) offered by another poster was he's buried at Southern Cross with his other wife. Made sense to me.

    The burial scene of JR in TNT Dallas was simply filmed at some nondescript location, and that's a sore point with me. I've offered my opinions in other threads that JR's burial scene would have packed a more powerful emotional punch if Southfork (house) could clearly be scene in the background.

    I suspect Jock's headstone/gravestone is simply a memorial stone. I have come across this same issue when researching my long forgotten ancestors. A case in point was when one of them drowned in the local river. The body was never discovered however the family still erected a memorial stone to honour that persons memory.

    I thought the Southern Cross was sold but I guess if there were graves there they wouldn't have been disturbed and maybe the new owner agreed to the addition. A lot of maybes...

    Here's the background image on my computer.

    So if you want to be continually reminded everyday of a brilliant American soap, this image is for you. :D

    I have read from those that have personally visited the ranch the house surprises them how small it actually is. What I do like about the house though is its simplicity in design and despite its age (that is when it was originally built), that design still holds up well today. One complaint though. I've seen images of the over the top interior...yikes. It's been mentioned in another post the current owners of Southfork would be best to gut the lower floor and replicate what is now 4800 Park Lane. Take a look.
