      Sue, would you please look for the death certifcate of Will Joe BUNCH? (
      could be William Joseph )
      Will was supposedly living in or near South Pittsburg, Marion Co., TN at the
      time of his death. Guessing it was in the time frame of 1885-1900 as my
      grandmother, his wife, was found on the Jackson Co. 1900 census listed as
      his widow & her son Tate B. Bunch was born in 1885.
      Any help greatly appreciated...
      Mary
