Mandy Mae Dunbar Ryks (Amanda) is supposed to be buried at Atherton, not in Findagrave. This is per her death certificate. Can anyone confirm if buried here?

I am looking for the possible Danville grave of Beulah Easley. I don't know when she died. I think she would have been born around 1911. She was African-American and was married to a Campbell before she married Johnnie W. Easley. He is buried in Atherton Cemetery.
