Davis frank lumpkin (1890-1910) – find a grave memorial brain anoxia

Davis frank lumpkin was born in dec 1890 in adams county, iowa, the 6th and youngest child of anderson lumpkin and annie springer lumpkin. He was handicapped, perhaps with down’s syndrome since his father was 78 years old and his mother was 35 when he was born. However, the 1900 census in adams co., iowa says that at age 9, davis was attending school and could read. Perhaps this was an error, but on the other hand, perhaps some kind of accident or illness befell him after this census was taken, leaving him with brain damage.

A notice appeared in the ADAMS COUNTY FREE PRESS (corning, iowa newspaper), sept. 17, 1902: on motion the county auditor is instructed to procure the return of davis lumpkin from the feeble minded home at glenwood, iowa, and the said davis lumpkin to be cared for by mr.Brain anoxia


and mrs. S.A. Stover, cass county, iowa.

(mrs. Samuel A. Stover was davis’s older sister, susie).

Apparently susie wasn’t able to care for her brother for long, because in the 1910 census davis was an inmate in the sonoma state home in glen ellen township, sonoma co., california. Until 1909 this institution had been known as the california home for the care and training of feeble-minded children. The family undoubtedly thought this institution was a good place that would take the best possible care of their loved one. This turned out not to be the case, but the families were never informed about what really went on in this facility.

Davis lumpkin died sometime after 1910, but the exact date isn’t known.Brain anoxia

Notes about the cemetery:

This cemetery is located on the property of the sonoma developmental center, just south of glen ellen, california. Established in 1885, this institution was originally called the california home for the care and training of feebleminded children. In 1909 the name was changed to the sonoma state home for feeble-minded and epileptics, later shortened to just the sonoma state home. In 1953 it became the sonoma state hospital, then in 1986 the name was changed again, to the sonoma developmental center. In the early days patients who were violently insane were often housed together with patients with conditions like down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, etc.

Over 1,400 inmates and 2 employees who died at the sonoma state home were buried here, beginning on may 3, 1892 and ending on december 9, 1939.Brain anoxia the bodies of 500 additional inmates who died betweeen february 12, 1940 and january 16, 1960 were cremated and placed in a vault on the hillside. Unfortunately, in 1964, all headstones were removed, supposedly to protect the privacy of the families, and graves were marked only with numbers. Records of the burials were retained by the state and are not available for the public. The cemetery is located on orchard road in eldridge CA.

Walk. Walk through the gate up the road, about 1/4 mile. The cemetery is located on the hillside to the left, after the first curve in the road. Up a short distance, on the

Left side, you will come to an iron gate. On the left-hand side of the gate is a bronze plaque reading cemetery sonoma state home 1889 – 1962.

Lori wicks visited this cemetery in sep 2003, and wrote, I found row markers along the top and on the left side.Brain anoxia I also came across what looked to be human bones on the hillside to the far right.

On the left far side of the cemetery I found one headstone:

On the right-hand side of the cemetery is a concrete vault with 1 bronze marker.

There is a birdbath and bench nearby.
