New Glenwood postings and Sidebars

Greetings – readers have shared some interesting information with us that we thought you might enjoy.  Two stories about unconventional uses of cemeteries: honey bees and food.

We’re continuing our additions to Glenwood Cemetery in Houston. This week you can read about Glenn McCarthy, king of the wildcatters and inspiration for the character Jett Rink in Edna Ferber’s Giant and Gene Tierney Lee, actress and beauty queen.

We have two Sidebars: Coffin Coiffures and the Oldest Multiple Burial Site in North America – right outside Houston.


More Additions to Glenwood, Normandy, and Secondhand Graves

Greetings – we’ve added more new names in Glenwood Cemetery including the oldest native Houstonian, an extraordinary gardener and another favorite television newsman. In honor of this past week’s memorial to D-Day, we’ve added the Normandy American Cemetery in France. Today’s Sidebar is about Secondhand Graves. Enjoy

Additions to Houston’s Glenwood Cemetery and 2 Sidebars

This week’s postings contain more listings for Glenwood Cemetery including the man who introduced ice cream to our fair City and one of Houston’s favorite television weather men. The new additions have NEW at the beginning of each so you may scroll through and find them easily. You’ll also find two new Sidebars: A Story about Civil War Tombstones and a bit of Cemetery Humor. Enjoy.
