There are no known records documenting the burial location of Joshua Hadley. However, it is likely that he was buried in Cane Creek Monthly Meeting burial grounds since this is where his wife Patience Hadley is buried.
A bronze memorial was erected for Joshua and Patience Hadley at Spring Monthly Meeting Cemetery in 1931 and can be viewed HERE
