Possible Ancestor Died in Wyoming Co., NY Poorhouse

Possible Ancestor Died in Wyoming Co., NY Poorhouse

I cannot find a grave associated with a Jacob W. Bauer (husband of Magdalene {Karcher} Bauer. I do see records of his birth year being 1830 and documentation that he spent time in a poor house in Erie county, NY as well as in Wyoming county, NY. It looks like he passed away in the Wyoming county poor house in 1921. What would have become of his remains? He has family buried in Pleasant View Cemetery, Dutch Flats, Wyoming county, NY but he's not among them. Would he have been placed on the grounds of the poor house?

Hi,

It depends if his remains were claimed by a funeral home that was hired by his family. That's one option.

The other and more likely is that he was buried on their grounds. Unfortunately there are about 1500 unmarked graves on this property. There is a web site about this, https://inmatesofwillard.com/2013/09/22/1864-wyoming-county-.... This was not an uncommon practice.

Sometimes where a person was buried will be in their obituary if there was one and on their death certificate. Successful Searching!
