  • Notes 
    • The only early census record on which she may appear is the 1885 Nebraska census, where Amie Love is listed as a sister to the other siblings. The name Amie Love associated with this family cannot be found anywhere else in public record. She is the same age as the Amy Love found in Colorado in 1897. Amie/Amy and Amelia both were born in Wisconsin and both lived alongside the other Love sisters in Douglas Grove township in the late 1880s.

    Residence:
    • Amelia & sisters living with A Mrs Danks and her daughter Hanny at Liverpool Cottage.

    Buried:
    • Until it can be verified that the Amy Love buried in Roselawn is ours, this is a bit of speculation. I can't find her buried anywhere else, and this is one of two cemeteries where most of the hospital's patients were buried.

      Since this is written on a piece of paper with shorthand practice, it's possible that she was taking a business class in Westerville and did not actually live there.

      "Denver Girl a Maniac"

      Colorado Springs, Aug 31. --Miss Amy Love, a Denver girl visiting here, became suddenly insane and was removed to the City hospital. Early this morning she attempted suicide by hanging herself with the bed clothes. She was discovered when just a spark of life was left. Her recovery is doubtful.

      "United States" appears to be a default entry. In other State Hospital census records, Amy's parentage is either blank or "Un." In one case, all "Un."s on sheet crossed out and replaced with "U.S."
