If you want a copy of one of the miscellaneous records, let me know

It's a month and a half since I posted a page specific index of the miscellaneous records found at the end of the Lyon County Insanity Records microfilm.  I haven't had any comments or feedback, so I'm going to discontinue doing those.  The first post on those records gave an index of the contents of those records.  If anyone wants a specific page, I have them all scanned and will be happy to send the specific page to you.  I've enjoyed my summer off, but school starts July 29th for me.....  I'll post other things on my blog as I run across something interesting.  I've created a Pinterest page of genealogy links that is increasing daily:  http://pinterest.com/letsdiscussit  It was created for the group I lead, monthly, at the Tennessee Genealogical Society.  I'm working on a cross stitch family tree (which is taking a really, really long time).  It has been 40 years since I did a cross stitch project.  After I finish this one, it will be, at least, another 40 years!!  Wow, it's a tedious project.  I think I rip out more stitches than I put in!  You'd think a math major could count little squares more accurately!

Our newest grandchild is due in November.  The other 5 grand kids live in Missouri.  Have a great summer!

I would love to see if you have any information in this particular set of records for a Ambrose B. Miller, living/possibly died in Lyon County, Kentucky 1895-1905. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Love your blog, just happened across this evening. It's wonderful.

I don't see an Ambrose Miller in the Lyon County Lunatic records. I assume he's the Ambrose B Miller in Lyon County in the 1860 and 1880 censuses. I don't see a death record or cemetery entry for him in Lyon County. Are you thinking he was sent to the asylum in Christian County? The death record might be in Christian County if he died there. The Ambrose B Miller in the Lyon census records was born in TN and was listed with a wife in 1880. The 3 daughters listed were born in Illinois. They could be his or they could have been the wife's by a previous marriage.... Let me know specifically what you're looking for and I'll see if I can find anything. The name Ambrose Miller sounds familiar to me though....
