Info on great grandfather in institution
 
I found my great grandfather on the 1940 census for the LaCrosse County Insane Asylum.His name is Bernt Tweet- or sometimes he goes by Gustav Bernt Tweet. There is little else about him that I can find. I am trying to find out how he got there - why he was institutionalized.
 
Any information you can give me or point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate.
 
Thank you.

In 1910 there was a lady by the name of Anna Oldenhoff, She was a patient there. She was 44 years old and was married. My question is how long was she there? and Do you know where she might be buried? Her husbands name was Christian Oldenhoff. Also would like to know, if possible, why she was there ?I am putting together a family tree and have nothing for the Oldenhoff side I'm at a dead end here with her and her husband. But I"m only asking about her, cause she was in the asylum. Would appreciate anything you could give me on Anna OLdenhoff

Finding Relative In Insitution

I found my aunt in Wisconsin Colony and Training School State Institution-Mentally Deficient and Epileptic on a census for 1940. She was 7 years old. She was from Racine, Wisconsin. Her name is Dorothy Mae Hamann born August 8, 1932. Her parents were Earl and Theresa Hamann. I am trying to find out information as to her status, when she died and anything about her. I am hoping you can send me in the right direction.

Thank you,
