Residents of the County Infirmary, 1900

The census enumerator who visited the Defiance County Infirmary on June 2, 1900 found thirty-nine residents there.  It was a place for folks who had nowhere else to go, or who were mentally challenged in some way, or who just did not have enough money to support themselves or the physical capacity to care for themselves.

 Those enumerated (in alphabetical order) with their ages and sometimes other information were:
