Has anyone on the list gotten a court order and been successful in getting medical records?&nbsp; My grandmother died when my mom was very young in a mental health hospital in Illinois and death certificate was very vague.

Denny, I can't answer your questions regarding Kankakee State Hospital
information but, do know that mental health records are only available with a
court order.

I may have identified a Gallagher relative who was listed as a patient of
Kankakee State Hospital in the 1920 U.S. Federal Census. Is this hospital still

in existance? Has anybody had any luck in getting patient information from

Any ideas?
