This lady is my great-grandmother on my mother's side. She had several children with my great grandfather Harry Otis Depoy but was institutionalized while giving birth to my grandfather Orville Otis Depoy, at Zeller's Mental Hospital in Peoria (Bartonville), IL. I have no information on her parents and would like to find out what I can. Luella died while hospitalized. According to family conversations, she was NOT insane. Her husband simply was not comfortable with her eccentricity and love for helping others. He had her 'put away' because she was always feeding poorer people who lived nearby, without question or, as I'm told, regard for her own safety. Please e-mail me with any information you may have on Luella Gamble. Thank You.
