I am searching for George W. Sargeant who died in July , 1900, in Luray TN. He is listed on the 1900 TN census age 52 with wife Aida age 22 and daughter LaLa age 3 yrs. I would like to know where he is buried. He was a Union Civil War vet and survivor of Andersonville Prison. He abandoned his wife and children in Iowa and went to TN, and I guess "married" again. The wife in IA was never divorced. I cannot find a listing for a military government headstone, and the war dept. does not seem to have a cemetery listed, just that he is buried in Luray. I don't see where anyone applied for widow's pension, but I know his wife in IA did not receive it. Aida and daughter are on the 1910 TN census, where she is listed as married to Ankinah Jones (she is 32, he is 62) LaLa is still listed as Sargeant. I would appreciate any leads. Thank you.
