I just happened to find this message thread as i searched for the Lowell City Hospital on chelmsford St, in Lowell.
Many of my relatives lived in Lowell in the late 1800's and early 1900's. I found one cousin, who was an inmate at the hospital, in the 1940 census. I searched her death record and it lists her as dying in 1994, in Worcester, MA. Worcester has a State Hopsital, know for housing those with mental health issues. I'm trying to determine whether or not my relative was an imate at both hopsitals. Since this was such a long time ago, does anyone have any ideas on how to obtain that information? Thanks!
