Obviously his death certificate says Bismarck Missouri, but perhaps they changed their mind and moved him.
Have you tried tracing his descendants, seems they settled in St. Louis. Perhaps he was buried beside one of them or someone has a family bible or something. Have you searched out deed records, many times they buried them in the back-forty.
Most likely though he is buried with family.

There is one other newspaper for that time period in the county, the Bonne Terre "Star News-Register". Maybe something will be in that. I also see the undertaker was from Ironton (Iron County) if that helps.

Any relation to a Verda Pryor 1899-1967, buried in St. James?
