Query: Samuel Briggs, Porter County

            I am researching an ancestor, Samuel Briggs, who died at the Porter County Poor Farm on 6/12/1895 and am looking for records of the residents from the facility. 

            I found a newspaper article that announced the death in the Indianapolis News on the 13th of June 1895 and the Indiana Archives gave me a patient log that listed Samuel Briggs and the date of his death.  I was hoping to find more detail about his admission and mention of next of kin. 

            Do you know if those records exist and if so where they would be kept? Thank you for your assistance.
