The form does not provide a space for entry of place of burial.

Mountain View Cemetery has an online burial index. It states that it is not complete. It certainly places Margaret and son John in Mountain View. Other indexing suggests that Joseph and son Thomas are buried here as well. It's possible that this is not entirely correct, but, given the context, it seems likely that the family is buried together.
