Birth: Aug. 16, 1902
Death: Aug. 19, 1902

His name is referred to on Genealogical records as Pos Sam Houston Pelham. He was born one month after the death of his brother William Lawrence Pelham. It is believed that his mother went into early labor and being a premature infant, his death was almost certain for the times. Pos Sam Houston Pelham lived on this earth for three days. He was loved and his death was sure to have been considered a serious tragedy to his already beloved and grieving mother. He was buried next to his siblings in Parker Cemetery.
