@Jess: Welcome to Christianity.SE! StackExchange sites are a bit different from other discussion-type sites such as forums. The Answer feature really is only for answering questions. If you have comments on a question or an answer, please use the Comments instead. I've converted your answer to a comment, since it fits better as one. Thanks for your participation, though. Please have a look at the FAQ link at the top of the page; it gives a simple overview of how the site and the community work. :) –  Mason Wheeler Mar 4 '12 at 6:08

Adam (and presumably Eve) simply died of old age.

Genesis 5:5 (NIV)
5 Altogether, Adam lived a total of 930 years, and then he died.

As for where they're buried, I don't think that's recorded anywhere in the Bible. Who died first certainly isn't recorded; that bit of trivia likely wouldn't have been important to people of the time.

I agree that who died when is trivia. The fact that anyone was dying at all is the biggest headline at this stage in Earth's history. –  Wikis Oct 21 '13 at 20:10
