Hi Lynda:
The 1939-40 WPA Historical Survey lists N.H. Allison, born Dec, 28, 1853 - no death date. Sarah E. Allison born Sep 25, 1844 - died Feb. 5, 1918. This survey shows them to be buried in Burnsville Town Cemetery which is now called Academy Cemetery that is located in the Town of Burnsville on Academy Street. It makes one wonder if he is actually buried there since he was in Tennessee in 1920. The next time I am out that way I will check to see if there is actually a grave there,
