Illinois Institute for Feeble Minded Children, Lincoln City IL

Classification: Query
Does anyone know anything about this place? I don't believe children were necessarily placed there because they were "feeble minded". I think it was a place to put boys whose parents couldn't or wouldn't care for them. I know of an inmate on the 1930 census who went on to hold a job, marry, and father several children. He was in his teens at the time and his younger siblings were in St Hedwigs and the Illinois Industrial School. Anyone have any information? I believe the parents were not good parents and may have lost the children or placed them there to get rid of them.
