    searching....he remarried in 1881

    I'm trying to figure out where Daniel/David ATKINSON died and was buried. I'd like to know if Sarah E. was a THOMAS, and I'd like to know where and when she died and where she was buried. My Daniel seemed to move back and forth between Fayette Co. and Raleigh Co. He's in the 1850 Raleigh, then the 1860 Fayette, then back to Raleigh Co. in 1870. I'm still trying to find him in the 1880 census.
