From an Oct 8, 2009 email:
We have the explanation for why Jesse T. Stone,Sr. is missing from 1910 Census record with Mattie and the children, as he is listed as a patient at Southwestern State Hospital (aka - Southwestern Virginia Mental Hospital), page 6, line 66 in the 1910 Census for that facility, location Marion, Smyth County, VA. In 1908 the hospital added a Tuberculosis Ward, we don't know the reason for his stay.
He died at the Norristown Pennsylvania State Hospital in 1934. We know that was a mental hospital, but my Grandmother Katherine E. Starks Stone always said he should not have been there.
