East TX Sorrells burial places, help needed

Do any researchers who are doing East Texas Sorrells have any concrete info on where Thomas Newton Sorrells was buried? Family tradition says West Mountain Cemetery south of Gilmer in Upshur Co. TX. He is not listed in the online indexes and when I visited the cemetery a couple of weeks ago I could not find his grave. I could not locate a death certificate for him in Upshur Co., either. He died between 1916 and Jan 1920. I did find his second wife's death certificate and funeral home records and she was buried in West Mountain, too., in 1951. And, you guessed it! No tombstone that I could find. David Bartlett Sorrells died around 1884 in Morris Co. TX and I can find no clue at all where he and his wife, Nancy McCain are buried. Any help would be greatly appreciated
