What is the name of your ancestor?

There was the Winnebago County Poor Farm located around the same location of the WMHI & Park View. I don't believe there are any records available anymore.

I am working on a project that involves the Winnebago County Cemetery and most of these people were at the Poor Farm when they died.

All we have is a list of names with some scattered info. I believe this is all there is left of any records for the poor farm but I am not 100% for sure.
