In Reply to: Re: Cleveland Asylum, 1880 Census Record by Kathy Borne of 2633

I think it's very possible that my gr-grandmother was the Eliza B STOWE listed as "inmate" in Jun 1880 at the "Cleveland Asylum" and in Jun 1900 at the "Cleveland Hospital for the Insane". She was Eliza (BIXLEY) STOWE born abt 1833 in NY who married abt 1851 of Ashtabula co, Ohio Joseph L STOWE bor abt 1830 in Ohio and they had 4 children: 1st Emma STOWE married abt 1873 Francis Dewitt BERRY; 2nd David H STOWE married in 1880 Jessie F JOHNSON and they both died in 1912 in Ashtabula aboard the Ashtabula Rapid Transit that crashed 16 Dec 1912. 3rd child: Jennie E STOWE married 1883 Charles Derrick LANSING. 4th Mary L STOWE my grandmother born 1867 married 1894 in Ashtabula co, OH William Barrett COLE.

1880 census Jun 15 Cleveland, Cuyahoga, OH - Cleveland Asylum
Eliza B. Stowe age 47 b <1833> NY dementia; occ: hse-keeper

1900 census Jun 4 Cleveland, Cuyahoga, OH - Cleveland State Hosp for Insane
Eliza B Stowe married age 67 b 1833 NY housewife; ch: 4

My paternal grandparents died before I was born and no one has ever told me anything about Eliza (BIXLEY) STOWE. I don't know who her parents were. The Ashtabula County record of the marriage of Joseph L. Stow and Eliza Bixley is Vol 2, frames 329-330.

If anyone has more info please contact me: mksroots at
