America was the youngest child of Philip Hugh and Sarah Pritchett Wood Warren of Williamson Co., TN. America suffered from mental deficiency, according to her death certificate. Her father died in 1885 and her mother in 1894 and I imagine she went to Western State Hospital afer that. She is there in the 1900 census. In the 1910 census, she is with a sister. Then apparently she reentered the hospital in 1912. She is in the 1920, 1930 and 1940 census as an "inmate" in Western State. The conditions there were appalling, according to some reading I've done. What a terrible life she was forced to lead.
