According to the Rhode Island Cemeteries database, Oliver Chace was buried in the Old Quaker Burial Ground in Providence, started in 1786 on Olive Street in Providence.(now defunct).

Find A Grave says that all burials from the Old Quaker Burial Ground Cemetery were relocated in 1857 to North Burial Ground in Providence, where the graves can be found grouped together beside cemetery work buildings near the old holding vault.

Oliver Chace was the founder of the Valley Falls Company, textile mill. This company merged with Berkshire Cotton Manufacturing Company in 1929 to become the Berkshire Fine Spinning Associates. In 1955 this company merged with the Hathaway Manufacturing Company to become what is now known as Berkshire Hathaway which is an American multinational conglomerate holding company now headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska.
