RE: Infant Behymer in Union Cemetery
I have been trying to locate the graves of this son's parents, James M and Edith (Oswald) Behymer. James M Behymer died 9 Feb 1919 in Mercer Co, OH. I have that he is buried in the Hopewell Cemetery in Hopewell Twp, Mercer Co, OH, however, I have not been able to identify a cemetery with this name. Edith died on 20 Aug 1919 also in Mercer Co. I mention this in the off chance that you might have some insight as to where these two might be buried.

The Ridges, Athens
Although the cemteries at Athens State Hospital fell into disrepair at one time, within the last several years there has been a complete turn-around, with teams of volunteers researching, restoring and beautifying all three cemeteries.

I don't know about Thomas Davis' stone in particular, but it looks as if many if not most stones survive. They were stone markers, about the size of a standard footstone, marble or limestone, with just the number engraved.

Several families historically and recently have had additional in-ground markers placed with the names and dates of their loved ones.

Here is a link, and googling may bring more:

Nellie Wright obit
From Columbus Dispatch, 30 Jun 1949, p. 8A:
" WRIGHT Mrs. Nellie Sullivan, 42 E. Prescott-St, Wednesday, age 95. Survived by daughters, Mrs. Nellie Belle Cassel and Mrs. Ruth Simms; son, Rolland Davis. Friends may call at the Glenn L. Myers Mortuary, where services will be held 10:30 a.m. Saturday. Interment Union Cemetery."
I was surprised to learn she had children, since I had seen the 1900 and 1910 census where she listed 0 children born, 0 living both years; thanks for your info on them, which explains why Mrs. John Cassell was informant at her death.

RE: Nellie May Wright
I believe you have the right Thomas C Davis. Although he is listed as being a usual resident of Chillicothe, he died at the Athens State Hospital (the largest in the state at the time). His grave is in Athens, Ridges Cemetery #1. Before 1944 the stones had only numbers, and Thomas is male grave # 492. I did not create a memorial for him, since the current cemeteries on Find A Grave are mixed up. Since there is an official list of who is buried where, I hope to work with admins to clean them up.

I'll be glad to transfer any of the Union Cem people to your management since you are a relative. I only made memorials for them since I came across the stones at lunch time.

RE: Nellie May Wright
Sorry, I am not related. I have added some information since you wrote, though. Her second husabnd was Lewis A Wright, a blacksmith, who is buried in Mount Sterling. I do not believe she left any children, but will check her Columbus obituary and let you know what I learn.

Burntwood Cemetery
Are there any headstone photos available for Burntwood Cemetery? I know many have been destroyed, perhaps there are some old photos. If you know of any, please let me know.
