When David died, he was living with his son-in-law and daughter, Samuel Taylor and Rebecca (VanBlaricom) Veal, as he had been for a number of years. His wife, Mary Ann (Reed) Van Blaricom, was at the same time living with their son, Phillip E., in Todd County, Minnesota.

Although there is neither a marker for David, nor any written proof that he is actually buried in the Van Blaricom Cemetery, there is strong enough circumstantial evidence: his brother, John, donated the property for the cemetery; his son-in-law, Samuel Veal, was a trustee of the Van Blaricom Cemetery at the time of David's death; Samuel and Rebecca, along with their son, Levi Simeon Veal, are buried there, as is their grandson, Charles Wesley Knight; and the larger and better-maintained cemetery in Waterville, Sakatah Cemetery, which is just on the south side of town, has no record of his burial. Just as his wife, Mary Ann, was buried in Todd County where she died, it is most probable that David was buried in Waterville in the family cemetery.
