This is not my line but at a recent funeral I discovered these stones. Does anyone know who they connect to?

Shepherd City Cemetery
Next to the United Methodist Church
Shepherd, San Jacinto County, Texas

Father
Ben Thomas Hord
12-11-1850
11-13-1925

His wife is buried in another section of the same cemetery:

Mother
Sarah Elizabeth Hord
6-20-1857
2-8-1943

In the same plot as Sarah are the following:

Belle Grady (possible daughter?)
4-1-1894
9-20-1982

W. D. "Dave" Grady
6-17-1892
7-10-1931

William D. "W.D." Grady
11-24-1927
7-17-1996

Jack Grady
Moulder
12-11-1915
2-20-1935

1900 Census San Jacinto County, TX Pct 2 ED 19 Sht 18 353 - 353

It appears that George and Bertha must be children from another marriage(s) as their mother was born in Kentucky. Also Ben and Sallie must have married sometime between Jun 1893 and Aug 1895.

I located some death certificates that may shed some light.
