Old Asylum in Willow Springs, Howell Co., Missouri?

Posted: 2 Jan 2014 12:25PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Allen, Cook
Sarah Elizabeth (nee Allen) Cook, first wife of Lafayette Cook, is said to have died at an insane asylum (as they were called back then) on November 20, 1891. The asylum is said to have been located at Willow Springs, Howell Co., Missouri. I have looked for references to such an institution in the area at the time, but have had no luck. Does anyone know the name of such an asylum or hospital? And if so, is there a cemetery associated with it; and are there any archived records of the patients or inmates?

Any info much appreciated. Thanks.
