Laura Maud

Montgomery, Laura Fort Collins Weekly Courier 12-28-1904 – Mrs. Laura Montgomery, aged about 40 years, wife of C.W. Montgomery and the mother of several children, was brought in from Lake park by Under Sheriff Baker and lodged in the women's department of the county jail, charged with insanity.  The complaint made by her husband states that she is violent at times and he fears for the safety of his children, the youngest of which is about three years of age.  Several years ago Mrs. Montgomery was an inmate of the insane asylum at Lincoln, Nebraska, from which she was discharged in the belief she was cured.  She had a hearing before a jury in Judge Mills' court this morning and being adjudged insane was committed to the state asylum at Pueblo.  The case is a very sad one, as up to within a few days she has been very much attached to her youngest child.  Suddenly, her affection changed to aversion and she left no opportunity pass to misuse the little one to the extent that the father became alarmed for its safety.
