Have you checked the cemeteries on this list? 

https://peoplelegacy.com/cemeteries/VA/King_And_Queen_County/ 

Many 19th century burials were in family plots which have been lost to time.  If you can find land records that show where the family lived county tax records may show the existence of a small family cemetery.  King and Queen County is not heavily developed so it's possible that a family plot may still exist.  

Many thanks for your reply, howver are you aware that a problem began back in mid-September when — billing itself as “one of the largest online repositories for cemetery and grave records from all available historical sources” — PeopleLegacy launched into a firestorm of public criticism: clearly it had indulged itself in wholesale appropriation of user-uploaded images and information from FindAGrave.com? Since then they removed all photos thereby bypassing copyright issues. I again thank you for your reply! CM Davis

Statewide (Virginia) birth and death records didn't begin to be registered until 1912.  King and Queen county, VA has some birth and death records as early as the mid 1850's.  There could be earlier (18th century) church records.  

There were at least three courthouse fires that caused loss of early King and Queen county records.  In addition, the 1790 and 1800 census records were lost for K&Q county.

Here are a few records found at FamilySearch that may be useful:

I indeed thank you for your efforts in my behalf, but I have these source materials attached to his wife, as well as each of his children's profile. You really spent some time for me!
