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.
