Brick Wall of the Month: John Snyder Dashiell

My brick wall for the month of October is John Snyder Dashiell.

John Snyder Dashiell was born in 1807, Baltimore, Maryland. He married Barbara Shaw Graham in 1830, Davidson County, Tennessee. He died in 1887, Nashville, Tennessee.

He was a steamboat captain, prominent in the Masonic Lodge, and served as Alderman of Nashville.

I would like to find a conclusive connection to his parents, Levin Dashiell and Elizabeth Snyder, and I would like to find exactly where he was buried. He is listed as buried in the City Cemetery of Nashville, but surprisingly no stone exists. One source puts him in the Mount Olivet Cemetery, and he is listed on a tombstone there, with four other individuals, but was he truly buried there?

Would the Masonic Lodge in Nashville have further information on John?

I am grateful for how much I do know, but would like to learn more.
