Mount Wilson State Hospital[edit]

My mother SAVANNAH BLANCHE ( VAUGHN ) BENNETT was a patient at this state hospital back in the late 50's. She was born in VA on July 21, 1921 and passed away Nov. 2, 1984 in Laurel , MD. I am so interested in researching information about her then. She has long passed away 34 years ago from an Anurisum to the brain. She had TB was the reason she was at Mount Wilson State Hospital and she was there for a long time. I was only 2 or 3 years old then. I am researching any kind of records the hospital kept from that time period. I don't know who or where to begin asking for information about records they kept on their patients. I am the youngest child of 10 born to her. I am the only living child left. I am 65 years old and I want desperately to know about her stay there. If there is anyone that can help me with this, I would deeply appreciate it. Thank You. joyceann

Hello and welcome. As you can see, after moving your comment to this talk page, that this is all we have on the hospital you are asking about. If you are looking for more information of the hospital or your mother's records, then you will need to do some leg work. First, you will need to locate where the records went and who holds them now. Then you might need to jump through some legal hoops to see those records. I would check both the state archives and county/town historical societies that the hospital was located in. (Though, you might have to go in person to see what they have.) I hope this helps. M-Explorer (talk) 03:19, 30 December 2018 (MST)
