No documentation to date has been discovered where Jacob was buried. However, the Confederates reprtedly buried their dead soldiers from the Kernstown Battle in the Stonewall Jackson Cemetery, which is a section inside the Mt. Hebron Cemetery in Winchester, VA. There are 829 unknown Confederate Soldiers buried there.
