Can anyone help in tracing the grave of my great-uncle William Edward Wood. He died in 1911/2 in East Las Vegas (1113 East Street is the address on an old letter from the lady he was lodging with at the time - and I've been told this is in Clark County).
The letter also states that they were going to place a white marble grave marker on the grave on behalf of the family.
"Will" was the youngest son in a family of ten children and his trip was funded by one of his older sisters (there's a bit of a family mystery there as to why he had to go!)
He was born around 1870 and so was only in his early 30's when he died of tuberculosis. He loved music and played the violin ("Fiddle") pretty well - as did subsequent members of the family. The lady who wrote the letter in 1912 was called Mrs I MacDonald, and Will was lodging with her and her husband up to the time of his death. She had enclosed a photograph of the house showing Wills favourite spot on the veranda but this has since been lost.
If anyone out there can help I would be really grateful.
