Death of Martha L Pitts and John Solomon Colley

Classification: Death
Surnames: Pitts, Colley
I was trying to tie up loose-ends on my tree when I came across something that is just stumping me.

Martha L Pitts (b. 1845 in Alabama) has had the wrong information attached to her. Many people credit to her being buried in Hix Cemetery (in Burleson County) but after contacting the Burleson County genealogist, she cannot find any information on her or her husband, John Solomon Colley (b. 1842). As I don't have death dates for neither one, I cannot, in good faith, keep their burial idea on my tree.

I have a feeling that their buried somewhere in Miliam county as the last census for Pitts is in 1900 for Milam County. At the time, she was widowed so I put Colley's death between 1880-1900.

They were probably married around 1867, but I'm not sure where as Colley was born in Mississippi.

Any information regarding the actual death and burial places of Pitts & Colley would greatly be appreciated!
