Robert Gourley family

My great-grandfather is Robert "Bob" Gourley. He was born in Blount County, TN. He married Ellen Caroline Butler. After his marriage I know that they lived in Rafter, Monroe County, TN. We do not have a picture of Bob, though I would love to be able to find one. He is buried near their homeplace in Rafter. We do not know exactly where he is buried, but we know the general area. I am unsure if the grave is even marked. I was also told that there was a baby or small child also buried with him. In the 1900 Census Ellen is listed as having 5 of 6 children living. There is a space of six years between the first two children where there could have been another child. I am still trying to investigate this to see if I can learn more.
