Subject: Brittingham family history
I have Benjamin Brittingham family history from 1600's in the Virginia/Maryland area. My great-great grandmother was Nancy Brittingham who married into the DeLay family and lived in/near Danville, Vermillion County, IL. This family history was researched in the 1920's30's, cites wills and property records of the descendants of Benjamin Brittingham from England. I don't know if this information is useful to you and I do not know for certain where Nancy Brittingham is burried. She died before her husband, who relocated to Wisconsin and lived the rest of his life with his son and daughter-in-law in Wisconsin.

This doesn't answer your question but I found this little bit and thought it was interesting. Proves there are more burials there.
Brittingham Family Plot
Jeremiah Brittingham came to Vermilion County in 1830 from Ohio and died in the winter of 1831; due to the extreme cold, he could not be buried immediately. An Indian chief died shortly thereafter and his people asked that he be buried with Jeremiah.
Also try a local funeral home. They will probably know where it is. Funeral homes are generally very helpful.
