History of The Willard Asylum for the Insane (Willard State Hospital), Former New York State Insane Asylums (State Hospitals), Custodial Institutions, and Mental Illness of the 19th Century. Current Information on Anonymous Graves, Historical Articles, Laws, Patient Names, and Helpful Links Abound! The Blog is an Extension of My Book and Was Created for Descendants of Former Patients, Genealogy Geeks, and History Buffs. Hopefully, This Blog Will Make People Aware of the Thousands of People Who Were Buried in Anonymous Graves in Former NY State Hospital & Custodial Institution Cemeteries. The Book, Blog, Posts, and Pages Have Been Researched, Written, and Developed by Linda S. Stuhler.
