Part II is about Timothy, a seventeen year old lad in 1878, who was sent to the London Lunatic Asylum from Windsor, Ontario. Timothy is the son of Timothy Moynahan and Archange Parent.
|Ink Sketch of the London Lunatic Asylum (from the 1871 Medical Superintendent's Report)|
Timothy's case file ends in 1890
Timothy was located on the 1901 census (Line 17) as a patient (unsound mind) Middlesex, Ontario (London) . Timothy's father died in 1902. His mother died in 1903 and he had two siblings. Enos (who died in 1903) and Mary Moynahan (from Timothy's first marriage) of Detroit unresearched (died 1905).
Researching patient Reg. No. 1300, I found this note that Timothy had been transferred to the Toronto Asylum August 4, 1906.
There is a Timothy Moynahan listed as a boarder (lodger) (Line 17) in Toronto South (District 127, Sub District 5, Ward 5) in 1911.
I feel frustrated with search engines. It seems I cannot locate records in an easy straight forward way by typing "Moynahan" into the search engine. To locate Timothy in the 1911 census, I first researched the district number for Toronto South (a reference found through using familysearch search engine) then I used wild cards (*) and Timothy's age (50) to get the following result:
And Yes. This result ("Franthy Mogannam") is the correct one for Timothy Moynahan!!!
