Ira Sargent, who has been discussed in several issues of Casefile Clues, was declared insane in Adams County, Illinois twice in the early 1900s. I have copies of selected pages from his casefiles. I'm going to have a researcher get a set of the entire files for me and we'll be using them in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues, after we get caught up. These should be an interesting series of records. The records for that issue are public court records, different from the actual institutional records for Ira.
I'm getting back on obtaining those records, but that takes a little more work.
