City Sexton Building

" Office that William Henry Smith Worked from as City sexton."
These photos are of the Sexton's office located on 40th and Ave K in Old City Cemetery. The more recent one is about 20 years old and the other one is probably from between 1905 and 1915. Pictured is William Henry Smith, the Sexton/ Superintendent of cemeteries at the turn of the century. My wife and I just found out that this William Henry Smith was my wife's grandfather. The irony of it all , is now it is 100 years later and I have the same job that he did.
I hope you found this information useful
and interesting, I know I always do.
