ANOTHER POSSIBLE

Daily Rocky Mountain News 7-1-1879 - Adjudged Insane - A man named Dennis Haggerty was adjudged insane by a jury in the Probate court yesterday. Haggerty imagined that the stoves in his house were full of devils, and he spent all his time pulling them down to look for the imaginary intruders.
Colorado Weekly Chieftain 3-18-1880 – Sad Case – A man named Haggerty, a resident of Denver, has for some time past been an inmate of the lunatic asylum in this city and is now so much improved that he will be discharged in a few days. On Friday his wife, who is living in Denver with several children, lost her reason, and she also will be received at the asylum to-day. The Denver Republican gives the following account of this unfortunate family: A sad case was reported to Poor Inspector Crocker yesterday, that of Mrs. Kate Haggerty, who lived in the extreme suburbs of the city near Decker's brick yard, occupying a miserable hovel that was exposed to all kinds of weather, and unable to protect herself and her three little children from the bitter cold that set in Thursday night. Mr. Crocker visited the house in person several days ago and found the circumstances exactly as had been reported to him. The woman is insane and the children, aged from four to eight years, exposed to every wild freak of their demented mother. Their father has been an inmate of the insane asylum for some time. The inspector ordered fuel and provisions to be taken to the house, and while Mrs. Haggerty availed herself of the coal sent her, she destroyed most of the food, asserting that it had been poisoned. The children were thus not only exposed to the cold, against which alone they were barely able to protect themselves, but also to the danger of starvation. The neighbors reported these facts to the authorities yesterday, and Officer Phillips repaired to Mrs. Haggerty's house yesterday evening with a hack, and assisted by several others the mother and children were brought to the city, Mrs. Haggerty finding temporary lodging in the county jail and the children in the poor house.
