I think the Highland County Historical Society has possession of the earliest known records of "The Infirmary". However, they only go back to about 1879. They were printed in part by the Southern Ohio Genealogical Society in their newsletter for the winter of 1998. I still have my copy but there is no Staley listed in it. There is a note that the Infirmary sometimes exchanged patients with the "Asylum" in Athens County, Ohio.
Of course, Ohio did not begin recording deaths and births until 1867.
