I am looking for information on John Means who was listed in the Knox County Infirmary 1880, with his daughter Ida M. Means. Does anyone know where the Infirmary (Bangs?) was and why were people sent there (TB?)?

His wife's name is Susan Losh. I am loking for anything on the three of them and the family that adopted Ida. Ida in turn married William Huffman.

The Knox County Infirmary was located in Liberty Township in the town of Bangs, Ohio. If you look up previous census information, they refer to the infirmary as the "poorhouse". I have pictures of the infirmary as it looks today. There is a small grave yard on the property. Unfortunately, the grave markers, which were wooden crosses are no longer there. If you visit the rootsweb site for Knox County you will see a partial list of some of the people that were buried there. I hope this helps. If you want any photos just email me at
