Quantrill's Guerilla Capt. Dick Yager

I'm looking for the location of the grave of Dick (Richard Francis) Yager. He was wounded at the Battle of Arrow Rock, Saline Co., MO in 1864 and taken to the Flannery home in New Franklin, Howard Co. They hid him out in the woods nearby where he was recovering. A company of Missouri State Militia (Union) found him and killed him, although they did not know the identity of the guerilla they had killed until several days later. He was probably buried near where he was killed but I have found no information on what happend to his body. Any information will be appreciated.
