It stated that she had previously been hospitalized at Jacksonville for 1 year and at Anna for 2 years. It was stated that she was not suicidal or homicidal.

  • Notes 
    • Charity M. Hulan Voiles died on June 25, 1894, while confined to the Jacksonville State Hospital in Morgan Co., IL. She was "last admitted" to the Jacksonville State Hospital on August 20, 1889. According to the Illinois State Archives' interpretation of the record she was 50 years old at the time of her death.

      According to Gerald Caulk's notes, the White Hall Register (newspaper) stated: "Mrs. Charity Voiles, mother of the Bluffdale brothers, died at Jacksonville, June 25, and was brought to Eldred Cemetery for burial."
      Again, according to Gerald's notes: "Phillip and Charity, along with sons, Marshall, and twins John & Bill, are alleged to have walked from Greene County, TN (Greenville), all the way to Greene County, Illinois. They probably had wagons for the transport of possessions, or, divided one with others. Charity once tried to drown herself in a river, was pulled out and saved. She died in an institution, under care. Family tradition says she was half Cherokee."

      I have been unable to find a death certificate for Charity.
