In the matter of Mary FISH alleged insanity. Jury called and sworn
Verdict....insane and pauper
Mary d 4-16-1884 Evanston, Cook Co IL; bur Calvary Cem. Interesting, if she was a pauper, who pd for burial in a "normal" cemetery? Tread lighty, may not be right person.
You can inquire of the courts for transcript of her case. She died in Evanston, so the asylum should be nearby.
