Series II: Pensioner and Asylum Records

Scope and Contents note

This series includes rolls of pensioners visited by Association members before and after the opening of the asylum at 226 East 20th Street. The roll for 1813-1832 (Folder 5) records each pensioners’ name, age, religious affiliation, the name of the Association member in charge of their case, and, in some instances, their date of death. The roll for 1840-1860 (Folder 6) groups pensioners by the name of the Association member who cared for them. A separate register of deaths occurring in the asylum covers the years 1838-1875 (Folder 7). The Weekly Visiting Committee’s book records conditions in the asylum for the period 1839-1843 (Folder 8).
