Where is James Leander Youngblood?

Many of you have tried to help me solve this brick-wall, and yet it is still a mystery. I do appreciate all of you who have put an effort into working on this.
I am still trying to find where James Leander Youngblood is buried. I just read on a family tree (on Ancestry.com) that he was buried in the Old City Greenwood Cemetery, but they had no source. I've tried looking up that cemetery but no one seems to know about the old grave stones.
I've read several places that he died in 1876, but have nothing to confirm that. His wife, Elizabeth Hensley Cook Youngblood lived until October 5, 1898 and was buried in the Verner (Green Elm) Cemetery. My husband, Jimmy, and I have been to Texas twice (2004 & 2005) and visited the Green Elm Cemetery. We also visited the Oakwood Cemetery, as well as the Fondren, and others.
Ed Bonner wrote a letter to Evlyn Brounley (who has worked very hard on the Youngblood family) in 1994 with a copy of "The Heirs of J. L. Youngblood" which is stamped Vol. 64, pg 19. The document only states that J.L. Youngblood died in 1876. I'm not exactly sure which book that is referring to.
Ed Bonner is a cousin through the Hensley line, and he has obviously worked very hard to get the correct facts.
We had a lot of family in Parker, Jack, Wise and other counties. Families such as Moore, Hensley, Fondren, Cook, Lankford, and DeArman.
I am wondering if James was buried in the Green Elm Cemetery since his wife and several of their children were also buried there, but I cannot find a listing of all interments.
I am hoping that someone working on these families will notice something about the death of JL Youngblood. I know it's been a mystery for a long time, but I'm not giving up!
Thank You All Again, Judy
