Col. William Maner STAFFORD purchased the STAFFORD plot in Glenwood Cemetery, Houston, TX, where two of his brothers are buried, as well as a Terry SMITH.

I hope to hear from anyone who might be related to the following people: In Glenwood Cemetery there is a STAFFORD SMITH plot, as well as a STAFFORD plot. Stafford SMITH is related somehow to my STAFFORD family, probably through Terry SMITH (male) who was buried in the STAFFORD plot in Glenwood.

The following people were buried in the STAFFORD SMITH plot:

Josephine Coons SMITH (#11), b. 1911 d. 1990
Stafford SMITH, Jr. (#9), b. 1910 Seguin, TX, d. 1953

Baby Smith (#3), b. and d. 11/20/1908 stillborn per cemetery record and a "Stafford Smith child" according to same record. Also the cemetery record states the baby was interred May 3, 1903--5-year difference from date on headstone.

*On 9/26/1990, Josie A SMITH was moved to the same space as Terry Celeste Smith.
