A slight correction. Pocahontas was buried in the chancel of St George's Church at Gravesend on the River Thames on her intended return with her family to Virginia. The cause of death was not recorded but often quoted as TB or smallpox. It is known that other members of the party were also ill which is why young Thomas was left in England.
Unfortunately the church burnt down many years later and so the position of her burial is unknown. A later church was rebuilt close to the site, by that time she had been 'forgotton'.
Early in the 1900's part of the cemetery was excavated to see if any of her remains could be found. They found a great quantity of bones appearing to be those from many remains in or near the burnt church. None were ever identified as belonging to Pocahontas. It was not until the 1900's in the cemetery surrounding the ‘new church St George’s’ a statute similar to the one at Jamestown was erected to commemorate her. Joyce
