RE: Elbert Ray -Hughey and Rice Cemetery -Buncombe County
Valerie, so many of the death certificates are wrong, my husbands was! There are several Rice Cemeteries, most are private. I know there is one in Weaverville. Notice he was from Yancey, do you think maybe there? Wish I could be of more help, will check out the old buncombe registry when I can and let you know.

RE: Elbert Ray
Hi Valerie,
Not to worry about your computer, since the Hughey - Rice Cemetery already exists on Find A Grave. Seems like there were 80 interments there. Congratulations on finding your Great-grandfather too!
Holler if you need me,

RE: Elbert B.Ray
Hi Valerie,
You'll have to refresh my memory on Elbert Ray, cause I don't recall looking for him now.
Yes, there's a D/C on him that states he was placed in the Hughey - Rice Cemetery in Riceville. If he was buried there as it states on his D/C, his marker would have been spotted before. This cemetery has been visited by Helen, so it could easily be in Tennessee, instead of NC. You won't find a plot number since that is a small cemetery up in the hills of Riceville.
As for making that burial official, the only way you could do that is find a marker, or talk to someone who knew he was placed there. Too many years gone now, so everyone will be deceased by now and I doubt that you will find his marker, since he was probably unmarked. He would be the only Ray in that cemetery, unless more are not known about. I am guessing that Walter Glenn Hughey was the informant, so go ahead and move him there if you want. Attach his D/C too for good measure.
