I am looking for the resting place of Benjamin WIGLEY who was the brother of George Washington WIGLEY. I am told that Benjamin and his daughter, Clarcie SCRUGGS are buried at Nebo Cemetery near Waltreak. However, I have not been able to locate Nebo Cemetery and have been told it is not in use and all grown up. Clarcie was the only daughter of Belle WALTER-WIGLEY-WOODARD. Any information on any of these ancestors would be appreciated.

TJ Bynum April 15 2000
I am searching for the parents of a lady named Beda Ann WILSON. She married John Wesley SNOWDER on 9 May 1888 in Sebastian County, AR. The marriage license states that she was a resident of Scott County. The license reflects her age as 16. I have never been able to locate or trace a family by that name in Scott County. The 1880 census of Scott Co., does not reflect a WILSON family that would have her as a household member. Supposedly, she is of Indian descent? Anyone having knowledge or information in regards to a WILSON family with a young female named Beda or any near spelling I would appreciate a source or where to look. Thank you.
