Brad Black and his wife were tracing their family tree through an online ancestry site when they learned his great grandfather had been committed to the Oregon State Hospital in 1930.
"We didn't know how he got there, how long he has been there," he said. "One thing led to another, we went on the website and took a look and there was Great Grandpa Elwood - he was there, you know, number 3009."
