The Savage in the old Cobb cemetery was Mary Pearl Savage daughter of William and Mary Savage.
I searched our recent cemetery surveys and found a Joseph E Savage born April 8, 1871 died Aug. 2, 1931. He is buried in the Grace Episcopal Cemetery in the community of Lawrence. There are several other Savages in that cemetery, but no Gertrude.
My copy of the Greenwood cemetery is at the office. I will check that this week and see if he is there.
The only other Joseph Savage I can find is Joseph L. Savage Mar 14 1841 and died March 9 1914 and he is in the Primitive Baptist Cemetery in Tarboro. I'll keep looking. We are still locating and surveying cemeteries around the county.
