When David died, he was living with his son-in-law and daughter, Samuel Taylor and Rebecca (VanBlaricom) Veal, as he had been for a number of years. His wife, Mary Ann (Reed) Van Blaricom, was at the same time living with their son, Phillip E., in Todd County, Minnesota.
Although there is neither a marker for David, nor any written proof that he is actually buried in the Van Blaricom Cemetery, there is strong enough circumstantial evidence: his brother, John, donated the property for the cemetery; his son-in-law, Samuel Veal, was a trustee of the Van Blaricom Cemetery at the time of David's death; Samuel and Rebecca, along with their son, Levi Simeon Veal, are buried there, as is their grandson, Charles Wesley Knight; and the larger and better-maintained cemetery in Waterville, Sakatah Cemetery, which is just on the south side of town, has no record of his burial. Just as his wife, Mary Ann, was buried in Todd County where she died, it is most probable that David was buried in Waterville in the family cemetery.

David Van Blaricom was born on New Year's Day, 1800, in Northumberland County (today Columbia), Pennsylvania, to Samuel S. and Ann Mariah (Strawser) Van Blaricom. The eldest child of his family, David was named according to Dutch custom after his paternal grandfather. The family moved with the Strassers to Ross County, Ohio, near Adelphi, by 1805, living in the Strasser household. They moved again to Hocking County in 1816. On May 6, 1823, he married Mary Ann Reed in Ross County, then moved to Shelby County near the Allen County line. In 1834, he purchased 80 acres of land in Dinsmore Township.
David's father moved to Liberty Township, Fulton County, Indiana (probably with David), then to White County by 1850. David may have briefly established himself near Logansport, Indiana in Cass County. David was one of only two of Samuel's children to leave the Fulton County area, settling in Le Sueur County, Minnesota Territory, in 1855. Minnesota became a state three years later. There was an incredible amount of growth in the state in this period; in 1850, the population was 6,700, and by 1860, it was 172,023. He settled on the edge of Sunfish Lake in Kilkenny Township in 1857. David spent the rest of his life in the County, probably contracting phlebitis late in his life. He was separated from his wife in his final years, though probably due to illness; they lived in the houses of different children. David died on October 22, 1878. The location of his burial is unknown; however, his son was a trustee of the Van Blaricom Cemetery nearby, so it is very likely that he is buried in an unmarked grave here.
