From Contributor #47038410:

William is buried beside his parents. His tombstone is in the tree bark. There are a couple of family stories about how there were some pecans in the sons pants pocket when he was buried & that a tree grew out of those pecans.
The other version is that the pecans in William's pants pockets were taken out & buried at the 4 corners of his grave.
