I am doing some research for my grandmother. We would like to find
out where her Great Grandfather, Wiley Stewart is buried. The best
that we have to go on is that he lived in and around Hickman,
Williamson, and Maury County throughout his life, and is probably
buried in one of the three. I realize that those 3 counties is a
tremendous area to cover, but if I could just get some help on
specifically who to contact in those counties for such records, as
burials, I would appreciate it. If you have any suggestions, they
would be greatly appreciated.
Wiley Stewart was born ca. 1842, and died 3-14-1901. He had two
wives both named Mary, the first was a Forrester, the second was a
Howard. He also had several children by each wife.
Again, thanks for any help or suggestions.
