David Luther Nabors was buried in what is called "Old Towne" Cemetery, which I believe is located in the Pittsboro/Bruce, Mississippi area. I have never been to the cemetery as I have the grave of Jacob Jackson. A family reunion is/was held each June at John Kyle State Park, MS for descendants of David Luther, and usually a collection was taken up to donate to the upkeep of Old Town Cemetery. Your other dates match up with mine give or take a year or day off or two. As to the name, Jacob Jackson changed it, apparently during the Civil War for ease of spelling in wartime muster rolls and other documents. He entered the war spelling it Neighbors, but afterward spelled it Nabors. It appears as Nabors on his tombstone. Therefore all descendants after J. Jackson, including David Luther, spelled the name N-A-B-O-R-S
