We found information that Rufus James died on December 18, 1948 in Walnut Log, Obion County, Tennessee and is buried in Beech Grove [church] Cemetery in Fulton County, Kentucky.
The funeral home that faxed me his paperwork indicated that Rufus died at his residence in Walnut Log, Obion Co., Tennessee, but also indicated he had another residence in Hickman, Kentucky. Rufus may have split his time between a daughter in Tennessee and a son, Herman, in Hickman, KY - the two places are only about 13 miles apart.
Rufus is probably buried next to his 1st wife, Oma COTTRELL, but apparently no headstone exists for either of them as several people have searched the cemetery for their grave sites and have not found them. I also called the City of Hickman, KY, the county offices and the local funeral home - no one has a list of burials for Beech Grove [Church] Cemetery or a map of who is buried where.
