Capt. George Meek was buried before 19 January 1802 at West of Pine Grove Mills, Centre Co., Pennsylvania, USA,

; From PGM Notes: Capt. George Meek is buried in mountain gap south of DAR monument on highway west of Pine Grove Mills. This tract was for lumbering at that time. I do not know whther this tract was part of his original grant from the Continental Congress. Or whther his wife Racel was also buried there. All trace of the grave has disappeared. This burial was presumably before Meeks cemetery was established.

His estate was probated on 19 January 1802.
