Person Scioto County Infirmary

Not Lunatics

“Judge Osborn held two lunacy inquests Tuesday afternoon. Doctors Pixley and Halderman were the examining physicians. The father of ‘Dutch’ White sought to send him to the asylum, but the examining board found him to be more of an imbecile than a lunatic, and he was allowed to go free. Mollie Fillmore, an inmate of the county infirmary, also failed to be adjudged insane. The physicians could find nothing the matter with her mind. She is afflicted with cussedness.”1
