Perttula documented 184 ceramic vessels from 39 burials at a Late Caddo Titus phase (ca. A.D. 1450-1680) cemetery at the Henry Spencer site (41UR315) in the Little Cypress Creek basin in the East Texas Pineywoods. Subsequently, two additional vessels from the site, one from Burial 23 and one from Burial 34, have been identified in the collections of the Gregg County Historical Museum in Longview, Texas. These two new vessels are documented below.
Burial 23 had six ceramic vessels placed with the deceased Caddo individual. There were seven ceramic vessels placed as funerary offerings with Burial 34.
