I cannot find a burial site for my Great-Grand Uncle Frank, who passed in Wheeling, West Virginia on Jan. 21, 1919. He was visiting family and when he died of tuberculosis, his body was sent to Jefferson, Ohio for a private funeral at his brother's house. He was also married and divorced and I cannot find any record of either, although one census points to his possible marriage in 1898. He is not to be confused with another Frank Welser who married a Sarah Welker. If you have any info, I'd appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks! P.S. His father was Lorenzo Welser and his mother was Laura Getsinger.

Thank you for all your info! I've been to the cemeteries in Jefferson and Lenox, Ohio where Lorenzo, Laura, etc are buried and he's not there. I've walked cemeteries and talked to cemetery caretakers for a year now and found nothing. I know he died in Wheeling, WV, but was shipped back to Elwood's house for a private funeral. I've even wondered if he wasn't buried at the farm where Elwood lived in Jefferson.
