Here is an 1857 report:

The admissions records (starting sometime in the 1870s) have been microfilmed and are available from the NY State Archives via inter-library loan. I have a copy of the 1884 record of my 2g-grandfather's admission to the Wayne Co. Insane Asylum, which was part of the poorhouse.
