Still looking for the time of Death & burial place for my great-grandfather, Hiram Williams. Listed below are some facts that could possibly help someone to recall.
Hiram was born in Columbia Co., Fl in 1846, married Sarah Jane Herndon in 1869 in Baker Co., Fl. Hiram listed in the following census;
1860 Census, Twp 36, Manatee (now DeSoto) Co., Fl.
1870 Census, Twp 36, Manatee (now DeSoto) Co., Fl.
1880 Census, Ogden, Manatee (now DeSoto) Co., Fl.
1890 Census, destroyed by fire
1900 Census, Arcadia, precinet 9, DeSoto Co., Fl.

Hiram married Julia (Green) North, 11 Nov 1902 (p. 405)in DeSoto Co., Fl. This was a couple years after Sarah Jane (1st wife) death.

Julia Williams married L.Jefferson Rivers 25 Aug 1904 (p. 532) in
DeSoto Co., Fl.
1910 Census, Crewsville, precinet 10, list L. Jefferson Rivers as head of house and Hiram as step-son.
1920 Census, Crewsville, precinet 10, list Julia Rivers as head of House. (no L.J. Rivers)

Hiram's first wife, Sarah Jane (Herndon) Williams is buried in Joshua Creek Cemetery, as is her son & his wife, Finis Hiram & Minnie (Cooper) Williams.

Appreciate any help, as I've been hunting this for the pass 12 years.
