More more clarification on Nathan's burial location - the paragraph from Peter C King diary reads-
"The battle was now over and by permission we went to the general field hospital, (which was located at Rossville), found his body and constructed a rude coffin of such boards as we could procure, and buried him under an apple tree, near the spring in the orchard, near the house in which Mr. Ross ( from whom the place takes its name) had lived. Upon a board placed at his head, we carved with our knives, his name, company and regiment.Thus ended the Battle of Mission Ridge so far as we took any part, and thus ended the life of Nathan D King, as pure a minded man, and christian, and as brave a soldier as ever carried arms in defense of our flag."

Specifically: buried in an unknown location during a civil war battle. The family was trying to get his remains removed to the Chattanooga National cemetery, but complications prevented it at the time.
