Copy Policies, Copyright Law & Acknowledgements

During the summer of 2001, the Special Collections Department in cooperation with the Adair County Historical Society transcribed and indexed records from the Adair County Home/Infirmary. The transcribed copies of these records are available in our Manuscript Collections while the original ledger and registers are held by the Adair County Historical Society in Kirksville, MO. The Adair County Clerk has the official Adair County Home-Infirmary records.    

The Adair County Infirmary as it appeared in 2006.  
The building is now the home of another county agency.

Our purpose in undertaking this project was to document the lives of those Adair Countians who lived at this facility, some of whom have no other memorial.

The records were transcribed as written. As is often the case with handwritten documents, the writing styles are sometimes difficult to read, the ink is often faded, and spelling can be creative and inconsistent.  Effort has been made to verify spellings.  If a difference was found, the transcriber’s correction is enclosed in [  ].  With a project of this type errors are often unavoidable, and we apologize in advance for any contained herein.


Scope of the Collection


County Home Record, 1881-1934, a ledger listing residents, date admitted, place of birth, parents’ names and place of birth, marital condition, nature of defect, date and character of discharge;

Adair County Infirmary Patient Register, 1937-1942, listing  patient, date of admittance and discharge, length of residence in county, sex, race, marital condition, date of birth, age, occupation, employer, place of birth, parents’ names and place of birth, informant name and address;
Adair County Infirmary Grave Register, 1920s, listing a few graves in the County Cemetery.  In the back of the County Home Record ledger is also a plat of the County Cemetery (handwritten, date unknown) which gives names and location of some of the graves in the County Cemetery.  These records are not complete often having only the patient’s name and date of admittance.
