I believe William was buried in Franklin County, or an adjacent county. To take William and/or Benjamin to VA or NC for burial would be a trip of probably 200 to 300 miles, over the Appalachian Mountains.

It does get uncomfortable here. While I was getting ready for church last Sunday, it was 82 degrees, with 97% humidity-and it wasnít raining.

I have searched all over Franklin County and surrounding counties for Williamís grave, but found nothing. Iím guessing it is unmarked, or on private property that probably once belonged to the OíRear family. Williamís will did give us his children, but no help on where he might be buried.
