The Inmates of Willard 1870 to 1900: A Genealogy Resource by Linda S. Stuhler

THE INMATES OF WILLARD 1870 TO 1900, A GENEALOGY RESOURCE, was written for those who want to glimpse the past and enjoy reading historical documents with little or no interpretation. I had three objectives for writing the book: to make the names of the Inmates of Willard from the U.S. Federal Censuses available to people who are searching for an ancestor; to share the old documents that I have collected and transcribed; and to make people aware of the thousands of former patients who were buried in anonymous, unmarked graves. Although this book deals with the specifics of the Willard Asylum for the Pauper Chronic Insane, and its inmates; the laws, rules, and regulations applied to all county poor houses, city alms houses, and public and private insane asylums in the State of New York during the nineteenth century. It outlines the struggle between the county poor house system of caring for the mentally ill and the eventual takeover by the state hospital system. Visit my blog at:
