Does anyone know where the records prior to 1918 are for the Sumner, Washington Poor Farm? My relative lived there prior to that time and I have been wondering how I can find/access that information?

Would there have been a contact person in case of an emergency? Or perhaps a person who was present during the admission process? Perhaps this information was recorded?

Thanks for your assistance.

Hi Kathryn. I looked through the info that I have regarding the Poor Farm and could find nothing. Good luck in your search.
