Insane Registry, No.1,
Escambia Co., AL


From: Cutt (Lygia Cutts)

The first entry is dated in the year 1918 and the last entry is dated in the year 1932.
Note: Please keep in mind that metal disorders were treated differently in days past than they are now. Many disorders were not yet recognized as they are today. Sometimes our loved ones were committed because they suffered a traumatic experience and just couldn't pull theirselves out of it without
help. I guess the point I am trying to make is that just because someone was committed to the insane hospital doesn't mean they were totally insane!
Sometimes orphans were committed because the county had no place else for them to go. I am posting this index because each record does contain vital genealogical data for those searching their family lines. Parents and siblings are sometimes listed as well as dates of birth and/or age and place of residence.
