Heartbroken ?!

Here are the words I wrote and added to the “comment” section of a woman I was researching. Seriously, I have located several cousins in mental institutions. The conditions are deplorable because I’ve carried my search to websites and read about the “deplorable” treatment of “inmates.”

It breaks my heart to uncover details like this. In the 1920 and 1930 Federal Census, Tenny is listed in Georgia State Sanitarium, Baldwin, Georgia. It was frustrating to search Ancestry and not find a death date because her children were with their paternal grandparents in the 1920 Federal Census. She isn’t mentioned in her father’s Memorial documentation. (Was he ashamed of this daughter?) ~~ (Lorraine Frantz Edwards, 14 Feb 2020, a fifth-cousin-two-times-removed.) ~~ ADDITIONS & CORRECTIONS WELCOME ~~

On this Valentines’ Day, I’m feeling very lonely and (intentionally) buried myself in family history. To his credit, the owner/manager of the RV Park brought me an adorable white stuffed bear with a real long-stem red rose. They are so kind and thoughtful here and I love every minute. (I took a picture of the bear but I was unable to upload it to my new desktop computer.)
