From S.C. Turnbo's writing:

'As men were so exceedingly scarce in that section at that time the women took charge of the body and buried it in the woods on a level plot of ground ½ mile west of Caney Creek and 1 ¼ miles south of Big Beaver Creek. Burton’s grave is in a field now. An oak tree was left standing at the grave to mark the spot where Burton, who was a union man, received interment. '
