Hi,

My great-grandmother's sister, Carrie (Caroline) Abel Dolph was a cook at Lima State Hospital for the Criminally Insane during the 1920s. She met her fourth husband, Howard Dolph, there. He worked on the farm that provided food for the facility. They married in 1926.

I would love it if anyone had anything they were willing to share that would describe what life would have been like for them. I would also like a photo of the hospital from the 1920s or possibly any photos of staff members that identify Carrie Abel/Dolph or Howard Dolph. Digital images are fine, I wouldn't ask anyone to part with their originals.

Anything I find about the hospital while I research my great-great-aunt, I'll be happy to share with the list.

Thanks so much,
Catherine

Default Looking for Great Grandfathers Records

I only have one photo of my Great Grandfather, He supposedly was in the hospital in Lima, He was convicted of Abusing his stepdaughter, If I sent a picture maybe you could match to one of your negatives. And where can we get the records???

Hello. Looking for individuals who may have material and/or stories relating to the Lima State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Unfortunately as time passes, more and more mementos from the facility are thrown away. I am looking for ANYTHING from the hospital. Photos, badges, clothing, patient artwork, etc.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cordially,

The Dailey Historical Archives
