It is believed that Nathaniel Martin Price may be buried in the Old McKnight Cemetery, Madison County, Tennessee. This cemetery was plowed under and none of the burials survived.

"Situated on a slight rise at the end of a field, about .2 mile directly south of the deadend of Oakwood Drive which deadend is .2 mile south of the juncture of Oakwood Drive and Parkburg and Old Malesus roads to Highway 18. There are only two large fieldstones now marking graves at this burial site but according to Mr. Johnny M. Tyler, Bolivar highway, Madison County, when he was at this graveyard with Mr. Marvin McKnight about thirty years ago, there were perhaps as many as a half-dozen fieldstones in situ. There are several very old cedar trees nearby as they were reportedly when these two men were at this location together. Mr. Tyler stated on October 21, 1996 to Jonathan Smith that on this occasion Mr. Marvin McKnight had told him that his own great-grandfather, Captain Will McKnight, was buried there.

On October 23, 1996 Jonathan Smith visited this graveyard in company with Mr. J. B. Duck who has lived nearby, on Oakwood Drive, since 1969. He told Smith that soon after he moved to this neighborhood an older man, Mr. Walter Butler, showed him this graveyard, calling it the McKnight graveyard and pointed out towards the open field mentioned above where the old house-place had been many years ago; how he knew about this house, by report or from having seen and remembered a very old dwelling near this location is not now known. From the public records it is established that there were McKnights in this neighborhood long before the Civil War and at least one William McKnight died in Madison County in the 1850s. Likely there are the remains of several of the first and second generations of the McKnight family in Madison County buried in unmarked and essentially forgotten graves in this graveyard."
