In Jack County or Wise County?

Uh, 10:16 AM, it said "Jack County Courthouse", so I guess it's Jack County (and Grant is STILL buried in Grant's Tomb)!

The good judge's picture hangs not only in Jack, but also Parker and Wise Counties as well. If I am remembering correctly, these counties as well as a large number of other North Central Texas Counties such as Cooke, Denton, Palo Pinto and others were part of the original 16th Judicial District Of Texas. It was a large "Circuit" and the Judge covered a lot of territory all by himself (probably on horseback or in a buggy). Back in the 1970's, the Parker County Bar association was able to get photos of almost all of the Former District Judges so they could be displayed in their District Court Room. Jack and Wise Counties decided they wanted the photos too, so they bought them to hang. The Old 16th District now is one of six District Courts in Denton County, Texas. This is a lot of information that few will be very interest in, but there you have it.

A riddle relating to Grant's Tomb, popularized by Groucho Marx on his game show You Bet Your Life, is "Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?"

Though the proper answer is "nobody"—Grant and his wife are entombed, not buried—Groucho would usually accept just "Grant".

Groucho would ask this question to contestants to ensure that they won something on his show.

Double Fake Mrs. U. S. Grant
