Great Grandma Beaver (Dempsceny) was the wife of John, she raised my Mother because her Mother died shortly after her birth. Grandma Beaver told my sister the story of her husband's death, it's very sad.
John apparently had dementia and had started doing some very dangerous things. One of those was putting hot coals in the bed which could have started a fire. Back in those days, there were no nursing homes. People told Grandma to put John in Broughton Hospital in Morganton, NC before he burned the house down. Broughton is a psychiatric hospital. I have heard the patient to physician ration was almost 500 to 1 in those days. John was admitted and not long after this Grandma Beaver was informed that he had been beaten and died. She wanted to file a lawsuit but in those days this was next to impossible.
