Burial Location for Martin Van Buren Wentworth

One of my grandmothers was Abigail Wentworth, Daughter of John Heard Wentworth. When she was living in Ellison Illinois her brother Martin Van Buren came for a visit. While he was visiting there was a tornado that went through and pretty much wiped out the town. His life was lost during the tornado. I have walked the cemetery's in the area where our family members are buried, but have not been able to locate his burial place. In fact, there is a small cemetery right across the street from where abigail and her husband owned a farm and he is not located there either. That is the place where she was later buried. I know that they had family members in Chicago, so thought maybe they buried him there. This is just one of those weird questions that you run across when you work on your tree. If anyone has any info, please let me know?
