Query:  I am trying to find my 2x great grandmother. My great grandfather James Madison Duff, born 1856 records his mother as being Eliza Lazalier. You have a record of an Eliza Lazalier being admitted to the "insane asylum" in 1852. I'm trying to figure out if this is the same woman. Can I access the papers through the computer? [ACGSI Comment: We do see a reference to an insanity case, but that does not necessarily mean that she was committed to an asylum. Allen County court records would need to be searched, starting with civil order books, for more information. This research could be conducted through the ACPL Genealogy Center or through the Allen County Clerk. These court record are not available online.]
