Mehetabel is buried in the Sag Harbor Old Burying Ground, plot #135.

Per Dorothy Zaykowski, Mehetabel was the "wife of Samuel Solomon...Samuel is recorded as an 'old colored man' having died in 1854. Samuel married a second time, as Hannah Solomon, wife of Samuel, joined the Presbyterian Church in 1829 and died in 1858. It isn't known where Samuel and Hannah are buried, but they may lie in unmarked graves in the Old Burying Ground."
