Matilda Ann Gregory gravesite

I am looking for the gravesite of Matilda Ann Gregory (nee Holcomb). She passed away in Howard County Nebraska in Mar 29, 1883.

Family records show that she was buried in St. Paul, but her mother-in-law (Elizabeth Jane Gregory) died in the same year and I found Elizabeth's grave in the Fairdale, Scotts Hill Cemetery near Elba.

I have looked in just about every cemetery in Howard County and can find no marked grave for Matilda Gregory. Matilda may have been buried near her infant daughter Sophia who died in 1879.

Matilda's father-in-law, Adam Gregory was a preacher in the area, probably for the United Brethren or Methodist denominations.

Is there a record in the county of unmarked graves or burials on private property?

I have seen much of the county on foot, but would be glad to go back if I just knew where to look.
