Due to the many years that have elapsed and sensitivity to privacy, few names are known of the people who called the Johnson County Poor Farm and Asylum home. However, Henry is a patient that has been remembered for the past forty years through Don Roberts. Henry was a single farmer who, due to old age, could no longer make a living on his land; moving in to the Poor Farm was the only option for him. This may have been because he had no family left, or because his relatives simply couldn't afford to care for him. Either way, Henry called the Poor Farm his home for the last years of his life.
