From the US Dept. of Veterans Affairs Nationwide Gravesite Locator:

SPIRES, THOMAS H
PVT US ARMY
DATE OF DEATH: 09/18/1903
BURIED AT: SECTION F SITE 1056
SAN ANTONIO NATIONAL CEMETERY

I believe this to be Thomas Henry Spiers. Husband of Margaret Marie Forsythe and father of several children including:

Doyle Coston Spiers
Sidney Spiers
Lola Spiers Westheimer
Levonia "Lee" Spiers Smith
Drusilla Spiers Holcombe
Ira Joseph Spiers
Artemus "Artie" Ward Spiers
Odas Wheeler Spiers
Levada "Maggie" Spiers
Everett Raymond Spiers
Ivy Spiers Epstien
Oras Aurelius Spiers


His death certificate gives his age as 68 which would put his birth year circa 1835. The 1880 census puts his date of birth circa 1842.
