There are many sandstone markers with no names or dates in this cemetery.  I have listed others in this cemetery whom I am sure are related to the Harmon Smelser family.  The cemetery is not very large.

Elizabeth Smelser 10-31-1805 - 5-25-1885 Wife of Harmon
Flarrie C. Smelser 3-21-1845 - 11-17-1926

Abner GREGG 1845 Pioneer of Texas, Killed by Indians, aged 72 years.
NOTE:  Abner GREGG is a descendant of the Gregg family who married into the Smelser family in Knox Co, TN and these families later moved together to Missouri, then to Texas.   Very likely, he is an uncle to Harmon.  This most likely means the Smelser / Gregg families arrived in Texas ca1845.
