    Hi Shirley,
    Lot 16 Section 5 Lot bought in 1901 for $20
    Wright, Alpheus W bur 1911 May 8, d 12/17/1910 @ 66y; owner himself (grave #2)
    Wright, Alvin W bur 1936 May 29, d 5/27 @ 70y14d; owner Alvin W Wright (grave ?)
    Wright, Mina Graves bur 1901 June 20, d 6/18 @ 62y; owner Alpheus Wright (grave 1)
    Wright, Nellie (Mrs. Alvin) bur 1912 Dec 13, d 12/11 @ 25y; owner Alpheus Wright (grave 3)
    I would assume that Alvin is in grave 4

    In a listing of Deaths reported by the Oneonta City Clerk to The Herald, it listed the following Wrights:
    Mina (Graves), d June 19, 1901, age 52 bur Glenwood

    These were funeral entries in Rev. Pendleton's Register (Free Baptist church, now Main St. Baptist in Oneonta)
    Wright, babe (Alvin's) 11 wks at Grand St. - vault 12/31/1896
    Wright, Mrs. Alvin; Insane; Binghamton- at 6 Fair St., Oneonta -Glenwood 12/13/12
    This must be the infant you mentioned but there was no entry in Glenwood's book as to his burial.
