There is an entry in the district court minute book of Sevier County, dated 26 July 1907:
In the matter of the Insanity of Cara Birdsall, Incompetent. On this matter the guardian of the person and estate of Cara Birdsall appears in open Court and makes a petition verbally by counsel I.J. Stewart for an order of delivery of said Cara Birdsall. Upon hearing the matter the Court issues its order for the delivery of the said incompetent to Isaac Birdsall her guardian.
After all she’s been through, and they can’t even get her name right!
But never mind that; Cora came home. The State Hospital’s records don’t tell us when she was released, or what condition she was in when she came home. Had her mental health improved at all? I don’t know. Who went to Provo to bring her home, and how was her behavior on the way home? I don’t know. Since Mary Birdsall was with her daughter through everything that had gone before, I think she must have gone to Provo to retrieve Cora – but this time, whatever Cora’s behavior, she would not have had the assistance of the sheriff who had helped deliver Cora to the hospital in the first place.
