I checked all of the Milam County Cemeteries that are online but didn't find either person.

You can contact the Milam County Clerk and ask if their death records go back to 1870 and 1874. However death certificates don't always say where the person was buried.
You can contact the Milam County Historical Commission, www.milamcountyhistoricalcommission.org/ and ask if they have any other ideas on how to find where they're buried. Successful Searching!
