Thank you for the information! My mother was born at the Winfield Hospital for the Feeble minded. She remained there (not with her mother though) until she was five. She remembered living in a big white house with a Momma Neil and a Daddy Ralph. She was sent to the orphanage in Atchison and Mrs. Neil Doubet was the person who signed the papers and delivered her there.
I have researched my mother biological and adopted family, but also wanted to know more about the people who cared for her as an infant and toddler. She was blessed to have them instead of being kept in the hospital ward with her mother or the wards with handicapped children.
Again, thank you so much for the wonderful family information and I will add it to the family history book.
