The Violet Cemetery found at the public library states Wille is the son of L & N. It also states his death as 27 Sept 1880. He is beside Levi and Nancy Hoke. I must ask how and where you got your edit before I can approve it.

Everytime I enter a Memorial. When I am finished, I then Hit the link on the left say All (Last Names in the Cemetery) and that is where I usually find my duplicates and then eliminate them.
Just a Thought.
