My grand Aunt Theresa M Atteln B. 20 June 1886 in Summit, Wisconsin D. 06 Dec 1937 in Clark County, Wisconsin

I am looking for her patient records or any information as to why she was put into a institution. A 1910 census record has her in Red Cedar, Dunn County Asylum...1920 census in Marshfield, Wood County Asylum...1930 census Hoard, Clark County Insane Asylum till her death.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Charmaine

check here for possible records
You might be able to contact the individual Asylum's and inquire how to receive copies of the records:
Dunn County Asylum: http://www.dunncopottersfield.com/history-of-the-dunn-county-poor-farm.html
Wood County seems to be gone.
Clark County Insane Asylum: http://wiclarkcountyhistory.org/clark/facts/1930Hixon_Assylum.htm The woman Diane Kleinke may be able to direct you in the right direction to find the records.

Most likely the records have been destroyed....The State Historical Society may have some straggling pieces of information.

Good Luck

Was it Tenny A. Sherpe? I find him having died in 1993 in LaCrosse, WI. Born in 1919, parents were John M Sherpe & Anna Bekkum? The facility is still in operation, although in a different location, so no idea if they have any old records. It is now the Lakeview Health Center, their # is (608)786-1400. Also you could try the county library there, they have some old records according to their website. La Crosse Public Library

Douglas County Asylum and Hospital
Looking for the patient records for Libbie Howard (born 1860) who is shown as being at the 'Douglas County Asylum and Hospital' Asylum on the 1910 census and on the 1930 census. I cannot find a death date or cemetery record, and would also like to know the reason for her institutionalization. Her husband was Elverton J. Howard (not at the Asylum) .

Thank you so much for your help!
