I am not sure, but I think Samuel Jayne is buried on his property where he once lived and had a grist mill. According to an article found in the Brookhaven newspaper in 1953, Mary B. Byrd stated that her mother said that Samuel Jayne was buried on the old home place. No trace of his grave has been found. Since he did in 1861 you really wouldn't expect to.
His wife Mary married P. G. Milam a couple years later and didn't die until 1899. In Samuel Jayne's estate papers she states that she is the only living heir, but in 1862 a case was filed that listed her and six "children" that have been named. If these were Jayne's children, he had another wife because Mary was not born until 1829 and the oldest child was born in 1825 according to the census records. I would love to know more about this man as he is the recognized founder of Brookhaven and it would be great to have a more complete history of him.
