Does anyone with more experience know what this says at the bottom right of the death certificate "19. Place of Burial or Removal"? I know it starts with State. It's the rest of it I'm having trouble with. Thanks for any time you can give me!
It reads State Anatomical Board, which, unfortunately means his body was used likely used by medical students, and probably dissected. Look for him in a 1910 Census and you may find him living in the institution he died in, Davidson Co Asylum. The census would have used the word "inmate" back then because the word was not tied to prisons like it is now.
If you look at the history of that institution, you will find all graves are unmarked. How sad.
If you are moved to get involved with preserving this site, there is a FaceBook page "Friends of the Central State Hospital Cemetery-TN" . The purpose is stated as "Friends of Central State Hospital Cemetery is a group dedicated to refurbishing the old cemetery grounds at the former Central State Hospital in Nashville, TN, so that they honor those buried there. There are an estimated 1700 + individuals buried on the property. It has fallen into disrepair and we hope to have it refurbished into a more respectable resting place for those interred there."
