Were They In the Poor Farm?

If you can't "find" your ancestor for a few years, have you considered the possibility that they fell on hard times and spent a while in the local poor farm or almshouse?

Records of the county poor farm may be at the local county courthouse, county seat library, a county historical society, or elsewhere.
