It is likely that Margaret was buried in same cemetery as husband in an unmarked grave. John is listed on this Church Register of headstones, map location 18. This registry reflects the stones that have historically remained intact and do not reflect the names of those unmarked or burial sites that were lost to church expansions or other damage. As with many of the Stout descendants buried on Stout Farmlands their stones have been lost to history.
