|Fourteenth Biennial Report of the Michigan State Board of Corrections and Charities, 1897-98|
One of the more useful pieces of information was provided by the 1897-98 publication "Fourteenth Biennial Report of the Michigan State Board of Corrections and Charities." So I followed that path and found a few other patients who resided at the Wayne County Asylum and were transferred to Ionia because of their dangerous tendencies. Frances Whittaker was one such case. Unfortunately, I can find no further writings concerning her. However, I did find her death certificate which shows that she remained at Ionia for the rest of her life.
