    3. Hello I am researching an ancestor John F. Murphy. On the 1900 Census,it shows him as Supt at Alma House, Beaucoup Village, Ill, Beaucoup Township, Washington County. Below his family's name on the Census, it shows a list of names as INMATES. Can anyone tell me what this house was? And why the names would say inmates? I have searched the history of Washington County doing queries and nothing comes up for this house or village. Other than Beaucoup was created in 1889 out of Ashley & Nashville precincts. And one of the first settlements. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Trudy Holden
