His funeral was performed
in the St. Paul's Episcopal
Church on 18 Sep 1831.
He should be buried in
Lynchburg, Va, but since
Diuguid does not have a
record he is probably buried
at his father's farm since
we don't have a location for
his parent's graves also.

Margaret Cabell, in "Sketches and Recollections of Lynchburg", described Davidson Bradfute as being upright, kind, and industrious; so much so that he commanded a high station of affection and respect in his circle of family and friends. His early death was a great calamity to his family. For many years he and his family resided in the house later occupied by Alexander Tompkins; and, their hospitality was known to all.
