Thank you for your additional information. You've helped me before regarding a James Sheldon in Wellington, and went the extra mile to mail information to me, which I am forever greatful.
The additional information you have provided is very helpful. It is more likely that they (Bradley and Silvina) are interred in one of the local cemeteries. I will contact the sexton for more information.
I'm using Anc...com for searching the Census records. We have a LDS Family History Room close by, and that's what they are using now, and so I have a subscription for a couple of months now and save the driving.
With your new information, I began to search, page by page through the 1880 Census in Lorain County, LaGrange TWP. I found the "530" number and your guidance brought me to Woodmansee. I find now that, in the 1880 Census search, they spell it "Woodmanse," dropping one "e" at the end of their surname.
I went back to the 1900 Census and searched Woodmansee again, and why I could not previously locate their entries, I cannot explain, but here they are.
In the LaGrange cemetery, there is an older section where some of the first burials were made. At their small local library across the street from the cemetery, they provided a map of plots in this smaller older section. I walked to the corner of the area, found my bearings on the map, and walked the grounds while viewing existing markers for reference. There were a couple of Sheldon entries and Woodmansee entries, but no markers.
From what you've been able to provide me with in the past, it is apparent that you are well equipped for Lorain County. I visited LaGrange cemetery in November, but my time in the area was limited to 1-1/2 days. That day in the cemetery, the sun was setting in the south-western sky, one of the only times that I saw the sun on my vaction.
