Query: Maxson, Fayette County, IN

            I have been searching for Truman Burdick Maxson for several years. He is my great-great grandfather on my mother's side.
            He was born in Plainfield, Otsego Co., NY, on November 6, 1814. His last residence was in Orange, Fayette County, IN, when he died on January 17, 1871.
            I checked several links on Ancestry to find where he is buried but came up with nothing. Can this be found in Orange County? Truman may have owned grist and/or sawmills.
