Burial place of William Pearson Laughter (1840-1900)

I'm trying to find the burial place in Jackson County of William Pearson Laughter. He became known throughout TX as Hon. W.P. Laughter of 'Square Bale Fame' because of his crusade for square rather than round cotton bales. He died in Jackson county and his wife received Civil war pension at Edna.

I'm trying to locate his burial site for his inclusion in the second volume of _Texas Burial Sites of Civil War Notables_.

Any assistance would be greatly welcome.
