I hear ya' on the age issue, etc.:)
If you know the county Melvin resided in prior to being taken to the hospital, you might check that county for an obituary or death notice and it might give place of burial. Some of the inmates were buried on the hospital property; they have a potters' field there as well as other cemeteries. There has to be a death certificate for him also...my ancestor was taken back to the home town for burial....do you know where Melvin was in 1920? And did he have a wife...children, etc?? If he weren't born in IL, he might have been returned to his home state for burial...lots of other possibilities...don't give up...I searched for years before I found mine, and in the end, it was a family story that was the clue....back then, they kept inmates 'under wraps'....
