RE: W G Howard
It is a set of 4 books by John Ray Maxwell. All of the proceeds go to the Grimes County Historical Society. If you can email me a contact phone number, I can forward the information to him if you are interested in obtaining a copy of one or all of the set. My email is sharon.plagens@netzero.com. There is a copy of his books to see at no cost at the Grimes County Clerk's office and the Navasota Library if you live nearby. If it is too far to come, email me for anyone you would like to look up that may be buried in Grimes County Texas, and I would be glad to look up the information for you. Volunteering helps me put back into our communities.
Regards,
Sharon

RE: W G Howard
There were only 3 headstones currently there. The other headstones may have been broken or removed over time. You can tell there were others by the way the stones are laid. I just dont know how many or who they were. In John Ray Mawell's Book "Grimes County Cemeteries Book One" In The Zion Cemetery Section, there are the following Howard's listed:
Mrs N A(Adeline)Howard 12/21/1824-10/10/1885 (pg 170) wife of George E Howard Section 4 Row Three
David M Howard 12/25/1870-1/1/1951(pg 177)Section 5 Row 4
Maggie E Howard 1/14/1878-9-28-1962(pg 177) Section 5 Row 4
Charles B Howard 6/15/1857 in Grimes County Texas and departed this life 7/24/1884. Aged 27 years,1month, and 9 days. He was loved and cherished by those who knew him best.(pg 187)Section 6 Row 15
George T Howard 1862-1931(pg 187) Section 6 Row 15
Josephine E Howard 7/25/1865-1/26/1875(pg 187)Section 6 Row 16
Mittie E Howard 1872-1923(pg 187)Section 6 Row 15
W G Howard 7/31/1829-1/9/1879 husband of J E (pg 187)Section 6 Row 16......
If you will notice on the photo for W G and Josephine E, their stones are in the front by the gated opening. Then if you look behind where Charles is buried, he is row 15. There are 4 unmarked graves on row 16 with W G and Josephine. There are 8 more graves on Row 15 listed and at least 3 are unmarked but noted. I will have to confirm by picture what all is in the book, but up to this date, his books are comparable with cemetery records. I hope this helps.

RE: W G Howard
There were just those 3 stones left, but I think I saw some more stones with the name of Howard nearby. When I go back I will check again and see. I am grateful to be of service.

W G Howard
You are quite welcome. I was there taking other pictures, but there was something about these stones I could not resist, maybe it was the fence, maybe the way the stones were sitting, ?. When I go back again, I will look for others with the Howard name. It looks like William G Howard Jr is buried in the Enon Baptist Cemetery according to John Ray Maxwell's Book "Grimes County Cemeteries" Let me know if there are any others in the area you would like for me to check on.

Regards,
Sharon Plagens
