Have you tracked the family on the census records? In 1910 before he died, and in 1920 after he died, they are in Robertson Co, TX. Could it be he's buried in that county? His widow and children are living there with her parents in 1920.

You might check, see if Troy is buried with his widow???? I did a quick check on the Robertson Co, TX GenWeb site. Francis and her Everette family members are buried in the Holly Cemetery, Community of Ridge, Robertson Co, TX. You might try finding someone who could check and see if there is an unmarked grave near these people.

Try Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- Type in Sweatt, Troy Leonard, someone else is working on this line, too. Apparently they haven't found his grave, but if y'all share information maybe something will turn up.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
