    I have an uncle that lived in Florida and died in a padded cell in the year of 1946, he had a disease that drove him crazy and that's where you were put at that time. Does anyone know where or how I could find out all that information ?

      I had an uncle that lived in Florida and died in a padded cell in the year of 1946. Does anyone have any ideas how I would go about finding out what disease he had that drove him crazy and any other information they may have on him? I was told that is where they put people with those kind of problems I thought they would put them in a state mental home.? He never was put in jail for breaking the law, he was a quite man and family orientated. He worked and came home, he lived with his brother and his family. Thank you Janet Piearcy Collum
