They lived in Manhattan for several years, in the old Montgomery Ward neighborhood on the lower east side. They moved to Elizabeth, New Jersey sometime after 1790, where he died in 1801. Davis Hunt was possibly buried in the First Presbyterian Church of Elizabeth, New Jersey. There is no record of his burial.
Davis Hunt passed away on 15 May 1801 Find A Grave: Memorial #7420669  The Record Book Of The Sextons Of The First Presbyterian Church Of Elizabeth, N. J. gives his date of death as 17 May 1801 and gives no indication of cremation or interment. (see Research Notes). A small letter ‘r’ next to the name means the stone was of red sandstone. So this would indicate burial.
Davis’ will was written 26 Sep 1799 when he of New Brunswick, NJ, a former resident of New York. He directs his houses, buildings and lots in Rosevelt and King Streets in New York to be rented and the proceeds to his daughter Margaret Rigby and nephew Josiah Hunt for the first year.

I have a feeling that Davis Hunt's Find A Grave Memorial was made to fit with information available and not created because his grave site has actually been located. So there could possibly be another Memorial for him. (Salvatore-85.) There was a burial, gravesite located. see notes above.
