I am working on an interesting story of the daughter of John Minson Galt III(1808-3/4/1868), Emily Virginia Galt (1837-1914).
She is the subject of a "ghost" story at the former Augusta Arsenal where her father was the military storekeeper from 1845 to 1861. It has been locally reported that Emily committed suicide there in 1861.
According to the census records, she was a patient at the Eastern State Hospital from 1900 to 1914. However, I have been unable to locate exactly when she became a patient or for what. It was a mental institution but the diagnosis would a helpful bit of information. Emily also worked at the St. Johns Orphanage in Washington DC. But once again, the only years known are 1880-1884. She may have been there longer.
I would like to create a direct line chart of her family from Samuel I, but the Ege and Howard Spillman Galt books are a bit confusing. Does anyone have this?
Thanks for any help.
