    Hi I found the cemetery! I paused the movie at the gravesite scene and searched for Goetz (in Texas) under findadeath.com. Goetz is the name on the headstone next to the faux ‘Albert Grape’ headstone. The results revealed 309 options, most with pics. A few pages in, I found the same headstone and discovered it’s in Saint Peters Church Cemetery in Coupland, Texas! You can tell immediately from pics of the cemetery from the flat, open land and wide, concrete square borders around each plot that it’s the same one…not to mention the identical Goetz marker 😊

    Yes, the cemetery is St. Peters Church Cemetery in Coupland, TX. I actually sent an email on this to the webmaster on May 27, 2020 but got no response. I guess it’s better to post directly here in the comments. I identified the cemetery through the ‘Eiben’ stones that are seen in the foreground when the the Burger Barn is coming into the frame. Those stones can be found on the findagrave website (Harms Otten Eiben and Otto Eiben tombstones).

      I would need clarification here. The graveyard on the map, as far as my research revealed, is the St. Peter’s Church Cemetery.
