Just because you leave it in, that doesn't mean you have to call special attention to it. You might include a copy of the census page, and say nothing about the "insane" category. "Insane" at that time may have merely meant that they had Down syndrome, seizures, postpartum depression, etc...

You might check censuses before and after, and also state censuses, for other clues as to why that label was applied.
