Hurr Mills died November 26, 1761 in New Garden, Guilford County, North Carolina. His death was reported in New Garden MM. It is true he could have been buried in the back yard, but when a Monthly Meeting reports a death, that person was active in the Meeting, that would not be too much of a stretch as long as the information from the New Garden records are noted. Also, in 1761, it would have been extremely unusual for a grave to be marked with stone or monument.
