You might want to look into the history of the house itself to see what, if anything, may have happened there before it became a group home. And I applaud both you and Araex as I worked in both a group home for two years and a psychiatric facility for about five. It takes a special person to step into these kinds of work environments and maintain your own sanity with all that is constantly going on.
And in the case of the psychiatric center I worked at, it was haunted, on top of dealing with the patients which made it all the more interesting! I can't tell you how many times I wondered just how confused some ofour patients were or were they dealing with an energy that was working on a different level. This was never evil in any way, and in fact because it used to be on the grounds of a stateasylum, it may have also included previous mental health patients, now passed, just trying to help in their own special way.
Thanks for doing what you guys do especially since the pay is anything but fair based on what you are expected to handle and deal with!
I know you are looking for information on the man but what I have for you is a point of view on the patients. Some years ago, my 2 daughters and I where going to a Dentist who had a contract with a home for disabled individuals. We (my daughters and I) spent quite a bit of time in the waiting room of this Dentist listening and talking to the folks the home would bring to their dental work done. The big thing we picked up on was that many of them spoke about having conversations with unseen people or souls. But unlike you, many of the councillors and caretakers ignored what the residents had to say because of their disabilities. I really believe that it is their disability that allows them to ignore conventional thinking and beliefs and allows them to see and hear what others blind themselves to.
I see Salansar has commented along the same lines right before of me.
Love & Peace ALL
You can look at the Recorder of Deeds Office or Tax Assessors Office depending on your area, this is usually found in the Courthouse (Clerk of Courts Area.)
In some states it's online, in other cases it's viewable by going to the Courthouse.
It's public information so you should be able to see the information.
Your local library or historical society may also be able to assist you.
