Shannon graves in Ellis County

I'm looking for the gravesites of Jefferson Charles Shannon Feb 1860-1 Jun 1948. He died in Dallas and was buried in Bardwell according to his death certificate. Also the graves of his son Admiral T. Shannon 8 Sep 1903-18 Apr 1978, and Admiral's wife Frances "Fanny" S. Berry Shannon born about 1906. Admiral (his first name) married Fanny 19 Jan 1922 in Ennis Texas. It's believed that they may have lived at both Ennis and Bardwell, as well as being in the Dallas directory. A brother, Andrew Jackson Shannon 23 Dec 1889-6 Oct 1983, also lived in Ellis County where he was shown in his 1817 draft registration as living on Rt. #1, Bardwell, where he was a farm laborer with a wife and one child. His wife's name is unknown to me and I would be interested if anyone knows anything about her, their marriage, or any children they may have had. Andrew J. Shannon died in Harlingen, Cameron, Texas. If anyone knows anything about the Shannon gravesites, or the Shannon brother's and their wives and children, please respond. I'm also curious to know if there were any other Shannon's, possibly children or maybe sister's to Andrew and Admiral,that might have lived there. I can't account for sisters Laura, Rosa, and Kitty/Katie. For some odd reason I can't find Andrew in any census records after 1900. Thanks.
