He would probably be the one listed as age 74, although that doesn't match exactly with what you have as a birthdate. In 1860 he is a farmer, with wife Jane, age 50, both born in SC.
You will be extremely lucky to find anything on a burial that early. Many times people were buried right on the property where they lived, and these burial places have long been covered over or grown over. Even if there was a grave marker, it could be buried over time or broken up and scattered.
You might contact the library in Lafayette County. Sometimes they have books listing early burials. I do not find your George on www.findagrave.com
