(ADDED by JOHN WARD April 19,2010)

* Eugene Layman Ward -- born Jan. 20, 1862 in San Jacinto -- died May 2, 1862. Son of Daniel Solomon Ward and Sophia Anne Coffman Ward. (Died while Daniel Solomon was stationed in Galveston during Civil War)
* Daniel Solomon Ward -- born Nov. 29, 1829 -- died Aug. 2, 1866.
Sophia Anne Coffman Ward remarried to George H. Cheveral in San Jacinto. They had 3 children all of which died soon after birth and were buried in the cemetery. The following is taken from S. A. 's bible:
G. H. and S. A. Ward married Dec. 13, 1867.
* Son of G. H. and S. A. Cheveral born Dec. 27, 1870 and died Aug. 1, 1871, age 7 mos and 14 days.
* Daughter of G. H. and S. A. Cheveral born July 12, 1872 and died in 1872.
* Daughter of G. H. and S. A. Cheveral born Jan. 11, 1881 died May 8, 1881.
* George H. Cheveral died about 1891 and is buried in the cemetery.
* Anton Armbruster was born in Oensbach, Baden, Germany in 1848 and died sometime between 1876 (birth of last child) and 1884 when his wife, Henrietta Frances Lemmel Armbruster, remarried. He is buried in the cemetery. A cousin remembers seeing the broken headstone on the ground when she was young. My Ggrandfather, Stanford D. Ward, son of Daniel Solomon Ward, married the daughter of Anton's sister.

In 1985, I saw three markers, 2 foot stones and a base of a gravestone on the other side of the road from the cemetery. Someone had stolen them and hid them over there. I took a picture but left them. I was going to tell the Park but never got to do it, when I returned to see if they where still there, they were gone?
