I just found my grandfather in the newly released 1940 census for California as a patient at the Camarillo State Hospital. This was a shock, but then I do not know much about my family. If anyone has heard of him or has any info, I'd be grateful.

Verne William Dove
b.March 14, 1897, Dexter KS - died 1968 in Santa Barbara
married to Grace Borders Dove residing in Ventura CA

Thanks very much,
Lori

Hi Lori

You probably already have this - but I checked the BMDs for Ventura Co and found

Marriage Index - V. William Dove Jr married Bonnie D Reid 12/09/1945

Hi Stephanie,

Thanks for responding. Yes, I do have that information. I think I pretty much exhausted everything I can find on Ancestry, but discovering the 1940 census entry for my grandfather, Verne Dove, really threw me. Trying to get a handle on a family that I wasn't able to be very close to and wondering why he was a patient at Camarillo.

Hi Lori

Someone on the list posted this address for obtaining Camarillo State Hospital records:

California State Archives
1020 O St.
Sacramento, Ca 94244-2600

and someone else told me this facility had the records:

Fairview Developmental Center
2501 Harbor Blvd
Costa Mesa, CA 92636
714-957-5000

Not sure which is correct or if they charge for the records.
Good luck!
Stephanie

I am curious. How is he your grandfather? I might be able to help you if you can tell me. He had five children.
