About Janet Davidson
She spent much of her life in a mental hospital in New Brunswick. She had what was then called a "brain fever," which was meningitis and encephalitis (according to her nephew Marshall N. Crandall). He writes: "Before she recovered from that, her husband died and her home burned down. My grandmother Jane tried to keep her in her home but she got away and spent three nights in the woods before they found her so she had to be put in a hospital, and not being a resident of this country was sent to New Brunswick. She was well along in her 90s when she died."
