My great grandparents, Levi & Marian Zumwalt, settled near Waitsburg/Dayton area in 1877-78 and according to some old family notes, they homesteaded up Whiskey Creek Rd on the “Old Creedy Place”. I’m trying to determine where exactly this was and I’m hoping someone can help me with that. Also if they homesteaded this property, would they have filed an application to do so? Levi was shot & killed in May 1879 and may have been buried on this property. However I believe he may have been buried in the Bundy Hollow Cemetery, which we have visited. Unfortunately there is no listing for him in the Cemetery records. Any assistance with my search of where they lived and where he might be buried would be greatly appreciated.
