I didn't know if you knew, but William Guy Brashears is actually the son of Henry Guy Brashears. I don't know yet where he is buried...still looking. However,him and Ardis married about 1905, then Henry died in 1910. Ardis married his brother Mack after 1910 then they had three kids. William IS listed in the census as being Mack's son, but he isn't. It lists Henry as his father on the death cert. I just thought I would let you know.

Thanks a million!
