Thomas Benton Nash

The following death notice appeared in the June 15, 1910 issue of the Sandusky Register:

NASH-At the residence, 752 Water Street, Monday, June 13, 1910, at 11:50 o'clock a.m. Thomas Benton Nash, son of Mrs. Mary Gord, aged 27 years, and 11 days. Funeral from the residence of Mrs. C.L. Hinkey, 129 Hayes Avenue, Thursday, June 16, 1910, at 8:30 a.m., with services at St. Mary's Church at 9 o'clock. Remains will be sent to Franklin, Pa., via the L.S. & M.S. Thursday at 12:04 p.m., and burial will take place there on Friday, June 17, 1910.

While the newspaper notice indicated that Thomas Benton Nash was to be buried at Franklin, Pennsylvania, the interment card for Thomas Benton Nash from Oakland Cemetery indicates that his remains were shipped back to Sandusky, Ohio on March 29, 1911, and Mr. Nash's remains were re-interred at Oakland Cemetery at that time.

As always....good detective work on your part. Just shows you can't always believe what you read in a newspaper ;-)
