Where is Buford Buried?

The biggest mystery yet to be solved in the life and times of BHN (Buford Hervey Nealy Hurt) is - where is he buried? I have yet to find his final resting spot and I won't rest until I am able to find it and honor him with flowers and a flag from his 2nd great grand nephew. If you know where he is buried please drop me some email.
