I understand from my late mother's research that the gravestones are broken or missing due to vandalism and tornados.  Mother stated that she could not find her grandfathers stone.  Below is information from his death certificate to document that he was buried at Mt. Olive Cemetery.

Cul (Cullen P.) Banks
b. January 1864 TX
d. March 15, 1910 Scurry, Kaufman Co., TX
buried:  March 15, 1910 at Mt. Olive Cemetery, Kaufman Co., Tx
  (I understand it was common practice to bury TB victims on the day that they died)
He died and was buried as a pauper.
The information is from Texas State Board of Health Standard Certificate of Death Registered No. 53
The informant was a J. H. Hanks of Scurry
Certificate was filed May 10, 1910 by A.J. Hindman, Registrar
