Williard Home, Indiana County, PA, USA


       

The Indiana County (Pa.) Home was situated on the old Campbell farm outside the city limits. About a few hundred yards down the dirt road was the Williard Home. The County Home was primarily for indigent adults; those with little or no family and/or money. It was sometimes referred to as the poor farm or the old folks home. The children's home housed mostly orphans and some children whose parents could not control them at home. I was "put" there because my father (who was born in 1862 during Lincoln's admin.) died. My mother, who had been mentally ill since about 1932, was becoming a nuisance bothering people, had to be put in jail until they transferred her to the State Hospital. There was no one to take care of us kids. Only my younger brother and I were placed in the Home. My older brother and sister found a "home" with relatives. My oldest brother was 17, my sister, 16. I was 14 and my youngest brother was 12. I suppose there were about 50 or so children at the Home while I was there - give or take a half-dozen. After just one day at the Home, my brother and I decided to find other quarters. After school, instead of going back out to the Home, we canvassed the old neighborhood asking neighbors if we could live with them. We had an aunt who lived by herself in a large house, but she wouldn't take us in. I remember telling her that we wouldn't eat much and that we'd sleep on the floor. So, we were taken back to the Home. The Matron had a talk with us and said we wouldn't have to be there too long. We would be placed in a foster home. Well, that never happened. We spent our days working in the fields - there were endless rows of corn, potatoes, tomatoes, etc. We eventually got used to being there, however. One can adapt to most anything at that age. The "bedrooms" were somewhat like an Army barracks - there were about 12 or so cots running down one side of the room with a like number on the other. No privacy. There was one room - a linen closet - where shirts and pants were kept. One just picked out one of each to wear. Sometimes they even fit. No one owned his own clothes, as such. Saturday evening was bath time. The smaller kids got in the tub 2 or 3 at a time. The Williard Home was, I believe, called the Children's Home to distinguish it from the County Home.

Vermilion County Orphanage, Vermilion County, Illinois
1932- 1936

       

My dad, Wesley E. Ford, (born 1919) and 2 of his brothers spent 4 years of his life in this orphanage. His father died in 1929, leaving his mother to take care of 5 children. She developed cervical cancer, leaving her unable to take care of the kids by 1932, when she was placed in a hospital/nursing home at that time, until she died in 1939. My dad would often tell us stories of this orphanage, the one I remember the most was how much he grew to hate tapioca pudding - he said they would serve it to the kids, and it looked like little eyeballs in the pudding! Which I think is particularly funny, because my dad can eat anything and everything on this planet that is edible, but he won't go near tapioca pudding! Anyway, I'm looking for anyone that served their time in this orphanage, my dad is still alive, he's 81 years old, and I think he might like to correspond with fellow "inmates".

St Johns Orphan Asylum, Utica, NY


       

Here's the basic history of St John's Orphan Asylum in Utica, NY: It was started by John and Nicholas Devereaux (brothers). They appealed to the newly established Community in St Joseph's Valley, Emmitsburg, Md and the request was granted. After a journey by stage and canal boat, Sisters Etienne Hall, Lucina Simms and Theophilia Williams arrived in Utica and opened the ninth establishment of the Sisters of Charity in the U.S. in a small house on St. John's Street. The Devereaux family continued its charity and it was their desire that the institution be entirely supported at their expense, but the sisters also set up fundraisers for support. Then in 1849 an order was received to releave the Devereaus family of the charge and the institution became an incorporated body. The Asylum was incorporated in March 28, 1849. The Rev Joseph Stokes and Francis Kernan served as president from 1849- 1863. Since then the institution has been under a board of directors and a superior has served as president. In 1853 Michael McQuade and his wife, Johanna gave a gift of land. In 1872 the institution received a part of the county tax for charitable instituions. By 1897 the grounds belonging to the institution covered an area of about 32,000 sq. feet. In 1907 the Sisters were offered a 2-story frame building near the outskirts of Utica. It was located on top of a steep hill. About this time Mathew A Carton purchased the land and deeded it to the Sisters of Charity for the purpose of errecting a modern, well equipped building. The building was occupied in 1912. The site comprised 22 acres. The initial cost of the building was more than $150,000 and it had accomodations for more than 300 children. The new building (the address was now 2527 Genesee St.) was 3 1/2 stories high and in 1942 the name was changed to St. John's Home and School. Formerly the school was strickly a girl's school, but in 1925 St. John's took in boys between the ages of 6 and 10 after a fire destroyed another Utica orphanage known as St. Vincent's Protectorate. A further merger came in 1955 when St. John's took in infants that previously had been cared for at St. Joseph's Infants Home, founded in the 1890s and located on Green St in West Utica. It remained as St. John's and St. Joseph's Infants Home until 1961 when it became Utica Catholic Academy. As of 1-8-95 (the date of one of the articles I am quoting this from) it it now known as the Academy at Southgate condominiums.

Methodist Children's Home Little Rock, Arkansas -USA
1960- 1961

       

I was in the orphanage(Methodist Children's Home Little Rock Arkansas) under the name Richard Wayne Patterson before my adoption. I have recently obtained my original birth certificate which states my Mother as Rebecca Underwood Patterson and my father as Reef Warren Patterson. It further states that I was born in Mobile, Alabama August 21, 1957. There is also information stating that there were two previous births. I am trying to locate my siblings. I was four years old when I was adopted and don't know if my siblings were at the orphanage too. If anyone in the Mobile, Alabama or Little Rock area has any information that could help me locate my family it would be greatly appreciated. I was told early on that my Mother had died and that was the reason for my being placed in the orphanage. However, I have no proof of this. I am now 44 years of age and my children are always asking about my birth family. I would love to have some answers.

It's time to heal the wounds of yesteryears... It's time to face all the fears...... It't time to shed the tears...... It's time to remember the yesteryears.... Where are the memories? Where do they hide? They are within us deep inside... They rule our destiny and hold the key... As to what our life was meant to be. The hurt, the pain, the guilt and the shame... The laughter and tears.... These are the memories of the yesteryears. My laughter sustains me, my anger subsides... My heart now speaks to the place deep inside... The cycles not yet broken, like pearls on a string... It's taken the present to explain... No one's to blame.

Tioga or Potter County, Pennsylvania (and surrounding areas)


       

I am not an orphan from a home, but i have been searching for one for quite a while. My problem is that i do not know the name fo the home(s) that the people i am searching for were in. I am looking for anyone who may have information on Nathan Allen and his sister Kathryn (any variety of spellings) Allen. They were left on church steps in Tioga or Potter county somewhere around the years 1906 to 1909. the children stayed together in the home they were sent to for some time then kathryn was sent elsewhere and Nathan never saw her again. I am searching for this information for my boyfriends father. He is the son of Nathan and would really like to find his fathers sister. If anyone could help me with the names of the homes in these areas or maybe someone finds the names of these people familiar i would really love to hear form you. We have no idea where the family comes from and it would mean so much for us to find Kathryn and/or her descendants. Nathan was about 5 yrs old give or take when they were left on those steps and his sister was still young enough to be left in a basket (probably a year or less) We have a birth for Nathan saying born in 1903 but it is only a typed record from the orphans court, not a regular birth certificate, so it may not be totally correct. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated. thank you Lynn Shockey

Chicago area, Illinois, Cook County
abt1907-1925

       

I'm looking for information on my grandmother. This is where things get tricky. She always said her maiden name was Cordelia Marimae Leasure. However, when I obtained her SS-5 application from Social Security she wrote her maiden name was French. Cordelia Marimae French. I recently found a Cordelia French as a boarder in a home. She was 13 in 1920 which matches my grandmother's age at that time. Also on her parents birthplaces was put U.S. Which makes you think she didnt know her parents. My grandmother spoke of growing up in the orphanage often, but was somewhat of a secrative person about details. She did say that the orphanage used to loan the children out to work on farms to help harvest crops at harvesting time. On the 1920 census, the people she is boarding with are farmers. This makes me think even more it is her. However, I know nothing about the name of the orphanage other than it was in the Chicago area. She later married my grandfather after meeting him in Chicago. She worked in a dept store as an elevator operator. Possibly Marshall Fields, since my grandfathers cousin worked in this store. IF anyone has any ideas on where or who to find records with and how to obtain them I would appreciate the information. Thank you

Orphanage in AR in or near Mississippi county
1902 and up

       

. I am looking for the family of Johnnie Perkins Laxson who was a barber by trade. He grew up in an orphan's home in AR until he became sick with smallpox and an Aunt Vic (do not know her last name) was called to come get him because they were afraid that he might die. However, he did not die and at the age of 14 he went to work as a barber. His mother died in childbirth and so did the baby boy who would have been Johnnie's little brother. Mother's name was Maggie Laxson. Do not know the father's name. He lived in St. Louis, Algiers in New Orlesns, Blytheville, AR and Shaw, MS. He was in a Sanatorium for TB in MS and was married to Vertie George who died in 1934 and was buried in Ittabena, MS. Vertie George was born in MO some where around Cape Guardia. Her mother's name was Sula and herfather's name was William Herry George. William Henry George was a Preacher at the Christian Church in Blytheville, Ar during the early 1900's Johnnie Perkins Laxson and Vertie George had one child, Maxine Laxson Bussey. Johnnie Perkins Laxson is buried in Magee, MS next to his second wife Ned Lindsey who he met in the Sanatorium. Johnnie Perkins Laxson was a 32-degree Mason and worshipful master of the MaGee Lodge. We can not locate the orphan's home because we believe it to have burned. Is there anyone who knows of a home in this area at this time or knows any connection the names above. SS information – Born Aug. 4,1902 Last Benefit Nov. 1981.

I am seeking any information concering my late fathers family, birth records, place. he had a piece of paper that was destroyed due to age and eventually crumbled to a pile of dust. the orphanage he spent time in was demolished in the 30's. I do not know the name of this place, only that it was somewher around Collingswood new jersey?? he stated that his fathers name was Collie, mother name Rizzo under her name cassato which could have been the person that delivered him.his birth date was oct, 28 1923?? he ran away from the orphanage several times in the late 20's. The last time he ran away they did not find him. so there may be some sort of police records. there are no photos of him as a child. maybe someone from the same orphanage remembers him?? or the the name of the orphanage?? anything to give me a lead!!! thank you!!

I am an orphan, 21yrs of age. I was adopted by Mr. Herchy who once resided in the US when I was 8 yrs old. He financed my education all this while till I got to Secondary School form 3. He passed away in on 12 feb, 2000 in a car accident. Initially the brother Martin Herchy of Utica NY.took me on and was sending money to me, but it's been almost a year now and I have not heard from him. All attempts to reach him or any relative of Mr Herchy has proved futile. I passed my exams obtaining the ff. grades. subject Grade interpretation. Biology E Pass Chemistry D Credit Physics C Good Mathematics B Very Good English B Very Good Science B Very Good Social Studies B Very Good. I have still not gained admission to the University since there is no body to finance my education. When I came out of school I engaged myself in selling farm produce like onions, cabbage, lettuce, etc. which I planted myself. I used the money I had gotten to learn about computers (Software). God being so good I secured a job after the six months computer training at a business center where I typed letters and designing using the computer. Then I enrolled with Sama Computer Training and learnt computer Hardware (Repair & Maintenance). Currently I am survivinng as a result of the jobs I get after repairing computers. I want anybody who's been touched to help me in my education either abroad or here in Ghana. Good will richly bless you for helping a brilliant but needy child. Counting on your support. Thank you and God richly bless U. E-mail me on eddiekoso@personal.ro

Pacific Protective Society (Oakland California, Alameda County, 1932)


       

Looking for information on the Pacific Protective Society. It is listed on my fathers birth certificate as the institution he was born at. The address is listed as: 1218 East 21st Street, Oakland, Ca. My fathers name was: Barry Vierra. He was born in October of 1932. According to my fathers birth certificate - his father was: Paul Russ (K.J.A.B. radion station/Belboa Floral Co both located in San Francisco). His mother was: Hazel Vierra (housemaid located in Oakland California). His baptism papers show a Pauline Green listed as his God mother (St. Josephs Church Oakland). Information on Pauline would be helpful too - maybe her family can give me information on Hazel, Paul, or where my father was.

My mother has told me the man's name on my birth certificate is not my own. She is messed up as you can see. I am trying to also reach siblings or aunts & uncles who may remember a little boy named bobby loomis or bobby aldrich (me). At around 40 I am trying to find myself by looking in my past but also I have some medical issues I'd like to get some input on. any help would be appreciated

The single room for the "lucky" girl that had a chance at it! There was a unit for older girls. Once you were in a certain grade you could move there. Can't remember the name of it.! Began with a K? The long tall steeple. The smell walking outside. I think it was the laundry steam. The round playground merri- go -round that was out back with the swings! Also back there was a path that led to St. Joseph Home down the way. One would stay there for a short time before they were moved to St. Paul's. Oh, the memories! The chore of ringing the chappel bell. Boy scouts and girl scouts coming on holidays to give to the "orphans"! Boy we made out like bandits! Fact was... we had it better there than most would. Movies, Ballroom dancing, Swimming Pool! There are so many more names and memories. I know I would remember if I heard the names.

My sister and I lived at St. Vincent's Childrens' Home in Baltlimore, Maryland for a brief time (1961-1964)until our family members could afford to bring us home. The old home is no longer in downtown Baltimore. Quite a few years ago, it was moved to a location in Baltimore County on Pot Springs Road, I believe. I would like to know how I can get pictures and information about the old home. Anyone have any ideas, in addition to writing to the current administrator, about how I can research this? I live in Montana, and my sister in Oregon, so we don't have local access to old courthouse or land records. Any information/ideas would be great. Thanks. Lois Anne Starr

northern New Jersey
1to 2 years. not sure

       

I was in an orphanage for about 1 or 2 years. I have been told it was in Jersey City, New Jersey. I do not know the name of it. It may have been a catholic charities run place, not sure, but at one time there was a carnival in the play yard and we children were watched by two nuns. The building was two or three stories. The boys slept in the main floor and the girls on the top floor. The play yard was on a hill and there was a chain link fence atop a concrete wall along a city street. There was also a mounted policeman that rode by almost every day. He would stop and talk to us. I am tying to find out the name of this orphanage to trace my early life history and possible find my birth family. If anyone recognizes this orphanage from my brief description, and its name, please email me. I was there in the early 50's. Thank you

Looking for Linster cousins, Tennessee Poorhouse or Orphanage


       

Trying to find what happened to the children of my great Uncle Will Linster from South Pittsburg, TN (Marion County). 1930 census shows kids to be: John 12 yrs old, Belle 7 yrs old, William, Francis & Virginia who was a baby in 1930. I was told the family was always very poor and when the depression hit, no one knows where this family went. Will's older brother Jack showed up in the Marion County Poorhouse in 1920 but couldn't find the other Linsters. The kids may have been placed in homes or taken from the parents. I think Uncle Wills wifes name was Oma. If anyone knows this family, please contact me. Thanks, Cindy Kunkel 19 Appleblossom Lane Alexandria, KY 41001

I am looking for information re: my grandmother who, I am told was put up for adoption in either Hickman or Louisville, Kentucky. (Jefferson county, I think) She was supposed to be around 7, her name at the time was supposed to be Myrtle May Moore. She had an older (I think) sister who was, I am told not sent to the orphanage. They were, I am told, supposed to be inheriting some land which was rich with Pecan Groves and that that may be why my grandmother was sent to the orphanage. Her sister was: Emma Margaret Moore, her father was: Charles Harold/Harould Moore and her mother was: Emma May Serrett/Sarrett-Moore. I think she had a brother who was a junior to her father.

Hopewell Orphange, New York City???
between 1938-1940

       

My name is Robbin and I am searching for any information on Hopewell Orphanage in New York. My mother's name was (is)Ingeborge Marie Becker.According to my mom, her mother sent her to Hopewell for 1 to 3 years. My Grandmother arrived in New York at 18 years old from Germany with no family. My mother was the product of a relationship between my grandmother Margarete Hausenclever and Eric Becker(he wanted nothing to do with his child). My mother was born in March 1933 and went to Hopewell when she was between 5 and 7 years old. Any info on Hopewell (location,still around,way to access records, year closed) would be greatly appreciated. I can be contacted at PetticoatsC@aol.com Thanks Robbin Buchtel

St. John's Orphan's Asylum / aka St. John's Orphange/ St. John's Home
1952-1958

       

My name John Bangert, a former resident or "pass boy" from St. John's Orphan Asylum from 1952-1958. This home was located at 49th Street and Wyalusing Ave. in West Philadelphia. I was hoping to get a history or pictures from the Sisters of Saint Joseph, archivist, who I contacted recently. I was also hoping to find the names, biography and perhaps pictures of the SSJ sisters at St. John's Home. Sr. Mary Eggberta, Sr. Mary, of Consolation, Sr. Mary Finbarr, Sr. Mary David, Sr. Alice Patricia, Sr. Helen Constance, Sr. Mary Daniel, Sr. St. Carthage, Sr. Cora Maria, Sr. Mary Francis, Sr. Perpetua etc.. Are any of these Sisters still alive? These were teaching nuns, and dormitory nuns from 1950's. Several building are still in use by the present owners and we are planning a 50 year reunion. Were you here? When and please tell us when. In it hayday, we had over 250 boys located here. Do you remember donations, day old cinnamon buns, Philadelphia Soft/ Hard Pretzels Sticks. Any one interested, please contact us at (508) 432-0545. We recently went on a two hour tour of the buildings in May 2003. We saw "L" & "H" dormatory building. On the 3rd floor where the nuns had their cells is now individually offices. We also saw "B", "E", we saw the old group shower room and originial toilets, and urinals are still there. "A", in the main building the chapel, and the dining rooms, the catacomes are still there where the coal bins were and the tunnels that linked all the buildings. The old laundry building is also still there and "E" &"C", dormatories and play rooms too. The Gym, poor, and school are gone and replaced with low income housing on Westminister Street side. Who remembers Mr. Funk "Pete" who would give out TP when we would try to sneak into the outside bathroom for warmth in the winters. Do you remember the swings and sliding board, will they are all gone too. Do you remember going to PHILCO radio factory for Christmas parties, with Sargent Bilco Phil Silvers? I am told me that there is a bench or pew on which we waited outside the Main office, it is now at the Motherhouse, does anyone have a digital camera to snap a picture of two of this and other art effects from St. John's Home Chapel? We hope to be putting a web site together so we can share whatever photos we get. Thank you, The Re-union Committee! John & Joe Bangert, John Beitzel, John De Gregory, Victor Medina

Duffy's Boys Home?? Suffork County NY; Islip Township
about 1890-about 1900 or so

       

My grandfather was suppose to be in a Catholic Home in NYC called 'Duffy's". I found who I think is my grandfather on the NY 1900 census in Suffork CO NY. He was a Protege of Edward A. Duffy, a priest, but it looks like my grandfather was living at the home of 'Father Duffy' and not in an Orphanage. Does anyone know anything about a Catholic Orphanage for boys in NYC or the town of Islip in Suffork county ny. Thanks Jackie

St Michael's orphanage, Hopewell New Jersey
1952

       princessdeedee37@home.c om

Princessdeedee, I also was adopted from St. Michael's in 1952, I visited in Jan, 1969 and tried to obtain information, I was only 17 at the time so they were not willing to give me anything. I was able to tour through the orphanage and found it very strange to feel I was there 17 years prior. It was run by I believe (Catholic Charities) probably the sisters of Mercy (I remember the sisters in all white) I spoke to the mother Superior. But no luck and I was unaware it was demolished in 73, but I haven't been able to find any info on it either, If you have found any info since your inquiry please notify me. I stuck on where my records may be now. I suppose I should check with Catholic Charities they may have retained the records. Well, good luck to you! Fellow adoptee born 1/26/52 in Morristown and adopted from St. Michael's orphanage in Hopewell, NJ. Sincerely, Pat Gail Birth Name given: Mary Elizabeth Davis, so I was told

Concord, California - born at Mount Diablo Hospital in 1963
1863 to unknown

       

I am searching for my biological father. His name was put on my original birth certificate as Glenn Melvin Baker. Some research on him has been fruitful. He worked as a Dairyman for Storenetta Dairy and lived at Point Arena, California in 1963 - the year I was born. I believe that he remained in that general area for some time. He was an Apache Indian born in Arizona with the alias of Chief Cochise Baker. He would be 60-70 years old at this time and may have moved back to AZ?? Any help anyone can give me with my search to find him, whether he is alive or not, will be greatly welcome. A.D.N.

St. John's and St. Joseph's orphanage, utica, new york
1944- 1945?

       Debra Dove, Feb 20 2002

I was at this orphanage in l944 and was adopted in l945 by a family in Utica, New York. It is my understanding that a staph infection swept the orphanage at that time; many infants died and I in fact received the last rites of the church. I attended Utica Catholic Academy on John St.in Utica. It had been a co-ed school and when a new school was built for the boys in 1961 (Notre Dame) the girls were sent (ironically) to finish high school in what had been St. John's orphanage on Genesee St. I have vivid memories of that forboding gothic hilltop buildling,overlooking Genesee St., it's grandeur and beauty. I had an odd sense of having been there earlier. I have tried to revisit but it has been turned into a rather exclusive condominium (somewhat of a gated community). Please feel free to contact me. I would love access to some of those records and perhaps could be helpful to you. I live now in Rochester, New York, but most of my family remain in Utica.

Life Line Rescue Mission, Kansas City, Kansas
1914

       

I'm inquiring about my mother-in-law, now deceased, who was adopted from the above orphanage in 1914. She was adopted by a couple named Davis who lived around Hill City, Kansas. She was a baby at the time. A handwritten card was given to her by her adoptive parents. The card says: Aloweese Butcher, born in Windsor, Mo, Feb. 4, 1914. I have original correspondence from a Mrs. Kate Coe from the Life Line Orphange. It shows the address as being 1916 N. 3rd, Kansas City, Kansas. In 1982, we contacted ALMA (Adoptees Liberty Movement Association), who said they had received a letter in 1974 from a Ruth Zimmerman, who was looking for a sister, born on Feb. 4, 1914 and adopted through Life Line Orphanage. She said her sister's name was Aloise Russell, daughter of Nathan Russell and Lora Williams Butcher. I could never find Mrs. Zimmerman, whose address in 1974 was 5300 Clark Dr., Shawnee Mission, Ks. Anyone with any information on this that can share, it would be greatly appreciated.

Sacred Heart Orphanage, 180 Belgrove Drive,Kearny New Jersey
1940 to 1950

       

Hello All: We share an experience that is special to us all not always plesant but special. Me and my brother Joe DiGiesi were put in Sacred Heart Orphanage in Kearny by our maternal grandparents. After some time it became normal. Then after we were living again with grandparents it was strange to be on the outside again "free" so to speak. I will always think of the Orphanage as HOME for as long as I live whereever I live. There were many boys from Newark there with us and many other brothers also. We had a close kinship with all who were there. The Nuns for the most part were caring except for the few hard cases. We were always drawn back for Christmas eve Mass there. It was instinctive. I went for a visit up to Monroe New York where we had a summer camp and slept in my car to extend the stay. There is also a retirement home in MonroeNY.there for the Sister of Charity who ran the show. I was glad to see Sister Agnes she ran the whole orphanage and she must have been sent by GOD to care for the about 100 to 150 boys there.I have a special place in my heart for her. Any body there at that time from 1940 to 1950 drop me a line. Wouls love to hear from you. I'll be around Best Regards Anthony DiGiesi e-mail Magnaflex2@AOL.com

I have a file from the NY Foundling Hospital, but its very hard to read and some of the information is not consistent.

Her mother claimed to have been found on a trash can lid in California (possibly San Diego)in 1920 and taken to an orphanage which she ran away from when she was 10 years old. She also claimed to have no birth certificate. Can anyone tell me what the practices where in that era for naming foundlings? How would she have gotten a surname? Also would she have been given a birth certificate? Thank you for any help you could provide.

The Children's Home, Uniontown, PA, Fayette County
1957 - 1958

       

I am currently writing a book on The Children's Home that was located on 141 Oakland Ave. Uniontown, PA. I along with my twin brother, John, was placed there by our birthmother. The home existed from the late 1800's at The County Home, Uniontown, then moved to Highland Ave, then to 80 McClellandtown Rd, then to Oakland Ave. Uniontown, PA. The home was closing up and we were then adopted out to a wonderful family. It actually closed July 1958. If anyone has any information or lived in the home please contact me. JAnet L. Mancini

       Feb.20, 2004 Chiofalo seeks others from St Dominics, Blauvelt N.Y.

I am searching for some girls who were in St Dominics with me. Also for the young lady who took me on as a big sister so I would have a visitor sometimes. Her name was JoAnne, and she brought me comic books that were taken from me as soon as she left.She may have been from a nearby college.Does anyone remember Sister Rose? Sister James Catherine? Food scrap handouts? The girls I remember are Olga Civitello, Dolores Svoboda, Anne and Ellen Duff who were models for Maud Tousey Fangel,and their Father was working in Arabia.The Henshaw sisters, and Mary Sullivan? who came to school but lived at home. She used to bring sandwiches for her lunch which she sometimes shared. From the food handouts thru the fence from Camp Shanks german prisoners of war, to the siblings I saw once a month, to the hours of cleanup after flu swept thru, I am filled with memories. I will be seventy next month.I am lonely. Is there anybody out there ?

       General

Hi, I was raised in several orphanages in Desplaines, Ill. It was the 1940 to almost 1950. I did write to them to get information about my stay and they were kind enough to respond. YOu would have to know the name and approximate years. In those days we were all educated in the orphanage. Everything happened right there, you rarely got out. Boys were separated from girls, except in school class rooms. If you had a brother there, you only got to them them once each month, briefly. It was strict but fair if you stayed out of trouble If you acted out, it could be quite rough. I got a great education that I am grateful for, but feel extremely limited emotionally in my ability to cope with society. I did have and raise 5 kids, and tried to overcompensate in my parenting as I had no role model We were left on our own too much. Too many kids and not enough adults. But I am alive. Are there any other Maryville Kids out there. If so, write me at winningsteps@aol.com Bye, I am going home free now. Sharon

put up for adoption through catholic social services in Pensacola FL


       

Baby Girl Born June 1958 at a Hospital in Pensacola FL Birthmother may have been a nurse, and may have been from Mobile Alabama. Hospital paperwork described the birthmother as having fair skin, blue eyes,and dark hair (although this info may be incorrect. Birthmother contacted Catholic charities on March 31,1958 and was described as being "a very attractive, refined and well mannered young woman." It was noted in the paperwork that the birthmother's sister came to be with her after the birth, and left $20 for the agency, before they both returned to their home state (most likely Alabama according to paperwork). Please contact me if you can remeber anyone from that time, or if you have any information at all. Thank You

1920

       

I am looking for Anna Guinnip. I found her name in the 1920 census for Harrison Township. It states that she was living with an Esther VanWert. I believe that she could be my Aunt. She was 8 years old at the time. My father's name is Charles Edward Gynnip (Guinnip) I am not sure where either one of them wer born. I also found an Irene Guinnip who died on June 26,1917. Exactly 2 months after my father was born. She died in Westfield,Tioga County,Pennsylvania. My father claimed to have a sister named Anna, who moved to Cincinnatti, Ohio and raised my sister Beatrice V. Guinnip, born February 16, 1947. I believe that Irene could be my Grandmother. Her funeral bill was rendered to a William Guinnip of R.D., Westfield. Pennsylvania. My father claims to have been raised by an Alvira Persing in Sabinsville,Pa. and having attended school in Harrison Valley. Alvira Persing could be my great-grandmother.

hodge surname


       

I have a long story, please take time and read about this puzzle that I'm trying to solve. On my Dad's side of the family, I started with Dad's parents and sisters, which I have never meet and they never meet me or my brother. One of my puzzles is this: My Dad kept in his wallet his SS card and the stub to the card. On the stub he wrote his mother's maiden name: Mary Brown and then he had Carl Hodge and Philadelphia. Something doesn't sound right with this. Why would you write your parent's names and your place of birth? I went to the SS office and they gave me this information about my Dad's SS number: Date Issued of the card is 11/1956 in Florida Dad's name = Frank Carl Hodge Parent's names are Mary Brown and Carl Hodge (Dad's SS number is 261-60-8971) Dad's DOB 1-25-1928 in Philadelphia, PA. DOD - May 1988 in Charleston, SC (I knew my Dad all my life.) I wrote for my Dad's birth certificate, but they had no record of birth for the names I provided. On my Mom and Dad's marriage certificate I have this: Dad's parent's names are Bill and Irma Hodge living in Detroit, MI. Dad's address in 1956 on the marriage certificate is Sumter, SC. Mom and Dad married in Lincoln, NC on May 17, 1956. The story my Mom told me was that my dad did something to where his dad was going to turn my Dad in to the police, so they got into a fight and my Dad's Dad kicked my Dad out of the house. Mom said Dad told her he had gotten into a car wreck in his teens and was in hospital awhile. (I don't know where.) All of this was in his teens. My Dad was traveling with the fair at the time Mom and Dad met and married. My Dad at one time worked were they took taxes out and that was in Florida in 1956. Dad never worked anywhere else where he had taxes took out. My Dad would either travel with the fair or had night clubs here in Charleston, SC. All my Dad's clubs were in my Mom's name. Dad couldn't or didn't want the drinking license in his name, etc. Dad was good at covering his tracks. I do know one thing when traveling with the fair back then everyone had Alabama tags because you didn't need car insurance. As you see I have nothing to go on without a birth certificate, etc. Thank You, Linda Hodge Davis linda_davis_29461@yahoo.com pspsclady@homexpressway.net i have photos of my l;ost family

The Francis Comfort Thomas Orphans Home, 507 Cherry Street, Bartholomew Co, Indiana
6 weeks

       

I am a girl adoptee, born on July 29, 1955 and was placed for adoption during September,1955. I was adopted by Thomas William "Bill" of Milan, Indiana and Mary Gray Thompson, Milan, Indiana, originally from Salem, Indiana. My adopted name was Nancy Lu Thompson. I have in my possession a letter from a woman by the name of Hazel McKain who states that she hopes they (my adoptive parents) are happy with her little sweetheart. I do not know if this woman is/was my biological mother or if she was an employee of the orphanage (The Francis Comfort Thomas Orphans Home, Bartholomew County Dept. of Public Welfare, Columbus, Indiana) at that time. I am unable to find anything on Hazel McKain. I would truly love to find my biological parents or siblings. Hazel McKain mentions my adoptive father by his nickname "Bill" so I know she knew him personally, not just as a prospective parent. My adoptive parents had been trying to adopt a second child for at least 3 years prior to September, 1955. Their first child was a son, whom they named Dale "Reed", adopted on April 24, 1952 (same day as his birth, my adoptive mother told me) at the Milan, Indiana clinic. Dr. William Warn of Milan, Indiana brought him to them that day. There were adoption papers for my adopted brother, but no such papers were found for me in my parents safety deposit box at the time of my mother's death in 2001. Whenever my mother and I spoke about my adoption she being visibly upset. (crying and shaking) If you have any information in regard to my birth, adoption, heritage, siblings, biological parents, etc. please contact me at nance729@aol.com. Thank you.

Cincinnati, Ohio
early 1900s

       

I am seeking information about Joseph Miller (my great grandfather)and his unknown brother. He was born Oct. 27, 1893 in Newark, New Jersey. His father's name was Mitchell Miller and his mother's name was Catherine (Mather or Mathers)Miller.He had a brother, name unknown. Apparently Joseph's parents both died during a flu epidemic around 1900, so Joseph and his brother were sent to a Catholic Orphanage in Cincinnati, Ohio. Joseph eventually ran away from the orphange and settled around Warren, Penn.

A Jewish orphange in San Francisco, California
from approx 1920- 1938

       

My father and his two brothers were place in a Jewish orphange when their mother was admitted to a hospital and their father abandoned them. My father is now deceased as well as his two brothers. He would never talk about those days and I would like to know about my ancestors. My father's name is: Gordon Ross Morehead and he was born 9/26/1917. His brothers names are Stanley and Harry Morehead. I believe that their mother's name is Ruby Morehead or Joy Ruby Morehead and his father's name is Samuel Morehead. I realize it is expensive to research your ancestors and I don't have much money. Does anyone know about my relatives or how I can get started? I did find a Jwish orphange in the Calif. listing but it didn't allow me to look at anything except the year 1900? Thank you for your help.

St. Michaels Home for Children, Hopewell, NJ USA
1960- 1961

       

For years, I have been haunted by the memory of this institution. My brother, Michael was 9 yrs. old, I was 5 yrs. old, my sister Karen was 3 yrs. old and my brother John was just a little baby when we were placed there. The boys and girls were seperated of course and I only got brief glances of my older brother at meal times and at church. I never saw my baby brother at all, except when my grandparents would visit, then we all got to see each other. Before being placed there , I had know idea what brutatity was. The abuse by the nuns was atrocious. I and my siblings lived in fear every day. There's one nun whom I will never forget. Her name was Sister Marie Philomenia. My sister and I secretly called her Sister Marie Full of Mean. I could go on and on about the barbaric treatment imposed on us by these alledged people of God. I did have one saving grace while there, however. Her name was Beth. I do believe she may have had a twin sister ( I can't remember for sure but it does stick out in my memory for some reason). She was one of the big girls, appox. 13 yrs. old. In the early evening before bed, she would fuss over me, brush my hair and talk sweet to me. I have thought of Beth many, many times over the years and have always loved her and held her close to my heart. Beth, if by some miracle you read this, I want you to know how grateful I was that you cared about me. You made a lasting impression on my life. I will never forget you. Love Forever, Linda

Arkansas and Tennessee
abt. 1900

       

We are trying to locate the orhanages our grandmother was in. The story has it that my great-grandfather (Arthur William Bethell) desserted my great-grandmother (Opal Hodges) and their 2 children. The children were placed in an institution by their mother. My grandmother said that at diffent times she was in 2 orphanages, one in Arkansas and one in Tennessee (maybe Memphis). She said that one was Catholic and one was Baptist. She was with her brother. Their names were Asa Bethell and Sinia Belle Bethell. He was about 18 months older, my grandmother's recollection of her birth place and birthdate were sketchy. We think she was born in about 1896. At different times she reported that she was born in Des Ark or Little Rock. We are not sure how many years they were in an orphange, but in 1910 they were living with their mother in El Paso, TX. We have a picture of a building with children standing in front of it, but no identification. Maybe someone would recognise the building. We would appreciate in information or ideas. Thank you.

My name is Tristan. I am and have been an Orphan my entire life. I am 25. I was raised in over 50 Fosterhomes, Boy's Homes and orphanages all over Florida. I was a ward of the state from birth until 17. I joined the Navy as a way out. For the past 8 years I have traveled the world. I've seen places and people most never will. I've done well for myself finacially. But inside I feel everyday like I slip a little further from everyone. I have this emptyness inside me that keeps growing. I feel no connection to any other person I know now. I have no family yet I think back to the hundreds of brothers and sisters I left behind. I miss waking up in the middle of the night and knowing that I would be ok because I could see 30 other beds next to me. I miss having 20 faces I could come home to. Most of all I miss having people who know my joy and pain to share it with. I feel like the last of my kind. I wonder if there are others who feel this way.

Martha Washington Home for Unwed Mothers ( Wauwatosa, Wi.) & St. Vincent Orphanage Milw. Wi.
1946

       

Born: September 23, 1946 Martha Washington Home and sent to St Vincent De Paul Orphanage . Adopted (?) by a worker at the orphanage (or taken) by a Rose D'Amato ( Topetzes)age 30 at the time. Was told by my Aunt that she worked at the Orphanage and told her family that she helped a friend deliver me, stayed with her for 3 monthes, she died, and Rose took me home. Only identification I have is a baptismal certificate with the names Rose Topetzes and a George Topetzes. My Mother ( ?) was married to a Peter Topetzes briefly who passed away in 1942, four years before I was born, but her name was Topetzes at the time of my birth because she had not remarried. There was no George Topetzes. My Aunt told me she couldn't understand HOW my Mother was able to adopt me at all because she was single at the time of my birth, and my Aunt had tried to adopt also and was married but told they didn't own a home so was denied. My Mother has never owned a home in her life, and yet she was able to adopt me? The crazy part of this whole story is that my Mother did work at St. Vincent's in Milwaukee, and told her Father this story, but says that she is my real Mother, but she had to lie. Now I don't know who's telling me the truth, my Mother or my Aunt. I am ready to do a DNA but it costs $400.00 of which I don't have and I also think it would kill my Mother if I even dared to betray her by not believing her story. HELP! How can I find anything out? The orphanage is gone and so is Martha Washington Home. My Aunt has told me to question my Mother more, but she is 88 with a bad heart and asthma. She raised me alone and it is hard, as an only child to be persistantly " bugging her " for details. Can anyone out there help me? Thank you.

July 1920

       

My mother was born in the home of Jack and Mabel Tennant in July of 1920. The home was called Tennants Nursing Home and was located on Chestnut Street in Alameda, CA. My mother was adopted by the Cardinet family. The Cardinets were very active in what was then a large French community in the San Francisco/Oakland area. The Tennant's home burned down and there are no records. If anyone has any information on this home, please let us know. My mother is 85 and still wonders about her birth mother. All we know is that the birth mother was a young girl who had become involved with an older French man who was very prominent in this French community. Thank you.

We were placed there from June 1957 - May 1958. It was a very good loving home to come from. WE were adopted out of the home and had a very wonderful life. There were other Children's Home in the Fayette County area. They existed from 1915 - 1958. I have alot of information I have been able to obtain since my research started.

Little Rock, Arkansas
1960

       

I think when I was born I was named Barbara Michaels. I was 6 mos. old when adopted by the Holbrook family in Russellville, Arkansas. I think I was born in Little Rock and my birthday is April Fools Day. I guess I was to much of a fool to keep. I hate the not knowing, and at 45 years old I fear I am running out of time to find anyone alive. My adoptive mom won't talk about the subject for whatever reason I don't know. I just want to know where I came from. Why didn't you want me or why couldn't you keep me? Is there anyone out there that knows anything???

I am an architectural historian researching the history of an orphan's cemetery, the Little Lost Cemetery, associated with the Morris County Children's Home in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey. I'm trying to find other examples of cemeteries created by orphanages so that I can compare them with the Little Lost Cemetery. If anyone knows of any children's cemeteries, particularly in New Jersey, please send me an email. Photos of gravemarkers and overviews of the graveyards would be fantastic additions. Thanks, Kate

Pittsburgh, PA
1938-1943?

       

Hi! I'm searching for anyone who might've known my mother, Mary Lou WEBER, who lived at a Catholic orphanage in Pittsburgh, PA from approximately 1938 (upon the death of her mother, who I believe was named Bridget) until approximately 1943. She was 12 years old at the time (I think) and was placed there by her father, George Byron Weber, as were her siblings. I'm not sure how many siblings she had, but they all would've been born between 1928-1938. I know one was named Barbara; and there were two boys, George and Jack. If any of this sounds familiar to you, or if you know how I can determine exactly which orphanage my mother was in, please contact me. (Is this info available via the census?) Any help would be appreciated. I would like to make contact with aunts/uncles/cousins who might have stories to tell. My mother has passed away. Thank you!

Pennsylvania


       

I doing research on a man from Scotland, here's how his letter of request reads. I live in Scotland, I am a warbabe from WWII. A few years back I received a letter from my birth mother, she thought she was going to die so wrote to me telling me of my father. I am writing to you in the hope you can find where my father was raised, from there the Military Records in NPRC at St. Louis, should be able to help further. My birth mother was already married when she met my father, I was adopted and she went back to her husband. She is now in her 80's so her memory is not what it once was. She told me my father's name was Gayle (Not sure of Corredt Spelling.) Robertson or Robinson or something similar. He was born around 1914 - 1918, never knew his parents, raised in an orphanage somewhere in Pennsylvania, became a miner then enlisted. He had a number of service stripes, so I think he may only have been a miner for a few years, until he was old enough to enlist. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, JAnet L Mancini

I volunteered at St. Michaels from approximately 1967 to 1971 and was assigned toi the nursery. I worked with Sister Alphonsus. There were no newborns at that time but infants and toddlers. I remember some names of the children and can see their faces like it was yesterday. I remember Sr. Alphonsus telling me that the orphanage was going to close and how worried she was about the children in the nursery. Some of the children were handicapped. She told me that unless they were adopted soon, they would be sent to state instutations which was a horrifying thought to both of us. I would like to locate some of these children and possibly Sr. Alphonsus. I do not remember the Order of Nuns there. I do remember that Sr. Alphonsus was in white as opposed to the nuns with the older children in black habits.

DePaul Cleveland Ohio

I was born April 30, 1963 but not placed with my adoptive family until Dec 19, 1963. I am wondering if DePaul was an orphanage as well as a maternity home for unwed girls.

St. Thomas Catholic Orphanage, Lincoln, Nebraska
1954-1955

       

I am looking for Diane and Terry, my little girlfriends at St. Thomas in Lincoln Nebraska during 1954 and 1955. Diane was an artist even that young and I remember Terry had a grandmother she went to visit. We were six or seven years old, Diane was maybe eight. If any one knows of any person at Saint Thomas in the mid-1950's I would like to hear from them. My name was Linda Hayes at that time and my brother Wayne was also at St. Thomas. The place has been gone for quite a while. But everytime I drive by what used to be an orphanage out in the middle of wheat fields on a gravel road--now there are townhouses and a mall--and I remember among other things like hearing another child crying in the night, the roses out front, the jungle gym I got my tongue stuck on in the cold, the wild rides down the fire escape, Roy and his brothers, and Monica, the daughter of the laundry woman. I've always wondered what happened to the children with whom I shared two years of my life (and mass six days a week). P.S. I'm not catholic anymore.

I DONT KNOW
2 YEARS

       

I WAS ADOPTED AT 2 YEARS OLD, NOT LEGALLY. I HAD AN OLDER BROTHER WHO WAS THERE NATURAL CHILD. THE ONLY PROBLEM THEY CATERED TO THAT CHILD. I WAS ALWAYS TOLD WHEN I NEEDED SOMETHING AS A TEENAGER GO GET A JOB. I FEEL FOR ALL ADOPTED KIDS AND KIDS THAT HAVE TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES. PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES AND WE PAY FOR IT. ITS ALONELY WORLD WITH NO ONE FOR SUPPORT AND HELP. I USED TO SEE OTHER KIDS, WHO WERE DADDY LITTLE GIRL AND WONDER WHY I WASNT TREATED THAT WAY, BUT I KNEW I HAD ANOTHER DAD OUT THERE AND NOT WONDERING WHY HE DIDNT WANT ME. IM NOT AGAINST ABORTION, LET CHILDREN BE BROUGHT INTO THE WORLD LOVED BY THE ONE WHO HAS THEM. NOT THAT THEY WERE A MISTAKE AND LOOK FOR A SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM

Jacksonville Florida
fourteen

       

MY MOST UNFORGETTABLE CHARACTER If I had to choose just one person who has affected my life more than any other individual, it would have to be Mayme Winters or "Mother Winters," as we called her at the orphanage. I am not exactly sure about her age, but when I first met her, I was about 5, so I guess she would have been in her mid to upper ‘30s. She was the Superintendent of Northeast Children's Receiving Home or as I call it, "The Children's Home Society Orphanage" located in Jacksonville, Florida. I can honestly say that I have never met a more evil, vile, person in all my life. Even when making that statement, I still feel it is an understatement. This woman cared about nothing on the face of God's green earth, except herself and her position in the organization. She was mean, hard, depraved and very vindictive. With complete honesty, I can also say that I never saw one single instance where Mother Winters ever held, hugged or cared for a child in a loving manner, other than for her own sexual needs and desires. I cannot count the number of lives she destroyed over the 11 years I knew her. For even the slightest infraction, such as climbing a tree or riding a bicycle without permission, a child was hauled away. Some were taken to the juvenile hall and some sent to the reform school, until their 18th birthday. This woman was absolutely the worse of the worst. She earned that title being an individual, who made children feel they owed her, simply because of the care they were receiving. She used her position as a tool to get want she wanted, that being respect and admiration by those who held power and authority within the community. She did not care about the children themselves or their welfare. She did not care about a child’s age, his or her needs or what the consequences might be later on in the child’s life. One statement is from a woman whom I believe committed suicide last year, as the direct result of what Mrs. Winters did to her as a young girl. Other statements given to me last year, also tell of several house parents who molested children for more than three years, while living in both the girls and boys dormitories. Let there be no doubt, Mrs. Winters was very professional in the performance of her duties. She was very neat and she was a very tidy individual. There was a demeanor about her that she exhibited, which would totally convince the authorities that she was 100 per cent correct in her accusations against the children. This woman learned how to lie very well by using just a little piece of the truth as the basis to substantiate her own lies. The only thing that really mattered to her was that the well-oiled machine kept operating at a constant and steady pace. No one, not a teacher, minister, house parent, policeman or child, could throw a wrench into the perfectly operating machine she had created. Her measures of strict control and absolute power worked very well for many years. However, when the children began to mature, she allowed no room for growth. It never occurred to her that a child’s thoughts, actions and decision-making abilities also matured as he or she grew. This process is considered normal by parents who have children. These changes scared her and she viewed them as major trouble for her machine. The older children were as quickly as possible, deposited in the criminal justice system. In one particular instance, a young girl was abused for such a long period that now, as an adult living in Jacksonville, she only leaves her apartment to purchase groceries and see her doctor. Other than leaving for those two reasons, she has had no social life, whatsoever. The children's home had placed her in a foster home. She reported to The Children's Home Society that the foster family was molesting her. She knew she was only there as a gift to their son for his personal pleasure. On one occasion, the family actually returned her to the Children's Home Society for one two-week period. The foster family was going on vacation and did not want the expense of taking her with them. When she reported what was happening to her, the Children's Home staff told her she had best "keep her damn mouth shut" and that she was "not going to ruin their fine record of family placements." The girl was made to return to that family, where she remained for another two years. I can tell you this for a fact. I spent several years (two terms) in the Florida School for Boys Reform School in Marianna, all because of Mrs. Mayme Winters and her lies. I also spent several years in the federal prison system during the late ‘60s. I have never (and I repeat) I have never met a jail or prison guard who could hold a candle to “Mrs. Winters.” "Mother Winters," as we were required to address her, would make us take off our clothes and stand naked, while she touched our private parts. Many times, we boys just snickered, laughed and giggled. To her, it was just a playful game. Did we know that it would leave permanent scars on our memories? What sort of sick perverted creature would take pleasure in humiliating children? You would think that when someone is molesting a child, he or she would at least be smart enough to be kind. Her actions were designed to humiliate, demean and shame her small victims. I was just a little boy at that time and I did not really understand what molestation meant. As far as I knew, I was just standing there following the directions of an adult. Besides, what grownup would do something that they might be sent to jail for? Therefore, whatever Mother Winters was doing to us had to be a ‘right thing.’ It is amazing to me, how I saw absolutely nothing wrong, when ordered by this woman to take off my clothes. I would just stand there with my little pants down around my ankles, while she did whatever it was she wanted to do. All along, I only thought she could get into trouble for slapping me across the face or on the buttocks. After awhile, most of the boys did not even bother to talk about what was happening to them. I guess, because being ‘played with’ became a normal thing to all of us. After a few years, a secretive silence seemed to set in and no one openly talked about what was happening. Yet, sex became so impersonal that many of the boys had masturbation contests to see who could ejaculate the fastest. Pleasuring ones self by any means to achieve orgasm became something enjoyable. For sure, we will never forget what Mother Winters did to us. Those days will be remembered forever and not in a pleasant way either. What Mother Winter took from us can never be replaced. Many children, both boys and girls, lost their childhood. We lost our innocence forever. We have lost our ability to trust. We will never know the meaning of giving love and worse yet, the ability to receive love. Yes, Mother Winter, if I had to choose the one person in my life who made the greatest impact on me, it would have to be you. I will not go so far as to say that I hope you rot in hell. I will leave that decision up to God himself. True storis from The Life and Times of Orphan, Roger Dean Kiser http://www.geocities.com/trampolineone

St. Thomas Orphans Asylum for Boys, Louisville, KY USA
1930

       

I just discovered my father and his two brothers (Charles, William and Edwin Bates) stayed at the St. Thomas Orphans Asylum for Boys during 1930 and possibly a little longer. My grandmother couldn't afford to care for the children (2 girls as well) after my grandfather died. I would love to see any pictures from this time period as, of course, I have no pictures of my father from his childhood. If anyone out there knows of the existence of these photos it would make my year. Thanks in advance.

Any orphanage in Cleveland, Ohio and surrounding areas
1918- 1930

       

Would like to find information on Charles Anthony Semprich, Anthony William Semprich and Jane Semprich who were abandoned and placed in orphanages in and around Cuyahoga County in Cleveland, Ohio between the years 1918-1930. They were all babies at the time 6,4,and 2. Parents were John Semprich and Mary. Grandmother Mary died during the 1918 Flu Epidemic and John just up and left the babies never to be heard from again. My grandmother's maiden name was Przysbylski and our last name could have been spelled Semprowicz, Semproch, Semprock. My dad Charles and Jane were born in Cleveland, Ohio and Uncle Andy born in Rockville or New Haven Connecticut. Grandparents only stayed in Connecticutt for a year and then moved back to Cleveland. My grandfather eventually married shortly after the death of my grandmother. The babies were forgotten and eventually ended up in the care of the state. We have no information for the years that are missing. We don't even know the names of the orphanges where they could have been. So if anyone remembers them or had any contact at the time with them or could tell me names of orphanges in the Cleveland area at the time it would be so greatly appreciated. The years again are 1918-1930. Hoping to hear from someone,Please Carlene Semprich Vettel

Looking for any information on a baby boy born 9/7/1933 at or through the auspices of the Pacific Protective Society facility in Oakland, CA to my mother, Elizabeth (Betty) Borland (age 18) and (possibly) to George Freeman (age 20), both from Sacramento, CA. The baby was named Robert Leland Borland. On the birth certificate, the father named is listed as "dead." But he may NOT be the father. On MY birth certificate 8 years later (1941), it is notated that a previous child had been born alive but "is now dead." All other records found indicate the birth but no death information. There is a possibility the baby was adopted out by the "Society" and the rest done to conceal the adoption for future inquiries. If you have any information regarding this, your response would be greatly appreciated. Janet Lee Dillard Ayers, Vancouver, WA

I just stumbled on to this site and thought WOW! I have been thinking about some old friends from "The Hut." My older sister, Evelyn, and my twin sister, Joanna, and myself were given up by our mother to St. Vincent's in West Philly. I was later sent to St. John's on Wyalusing Ave. in West Philly. The years there from 1943 to 1948 are just a blur. Mostly not too good memories. In 1948 I was sent to St. Joe's or "The Hut" as we called it. Some good memories with a bunch of great guys. John DiGiacomo, Ed O'Mally, Billy Watson, Joe Klein just to name a few. If any of you guys are out there, e-mail me @ jmccann@satx.rr.com. Would love to reminiece about old times.

Hello My name is Reinhold. I just want to say that I never dreamed that I would ever find others who had lived at St Michaels Orphange Hopewell New Jersey. I lived there around 1959-1962. The pain I had in my heart have to live in a place like that is beyond words. I hope that all the children had found a family to love them. I so much would love to hear from others who have gone through the same pain. I do think that the healing can start if we can start to talk to each other about the life we once shared by living in a place such as this Reinhold Woykowski

Hi, I grew up in St. Joseph Hall, 735 Willoughby Ave. B'klyn., N.Y.. Every Summer we went to camp at St. Joseph's Villa in Shoreham, N.Y.(Long Island). I still see the "FISH-TAIL CHURCH" when I return to Shoreham Beach. I have fond memories & would like to connect with other girls (now Women) from Joey's. I was using the name Carmen Lorenzo at that time. My two sisters were there too. If anyone wants to contact me feel free to do so. I would love to attend a REUNION if there will be on soon. I remember meeting Billy Ryan a guy who worked at the camp every Summer. I saw him in 1992 at Shoreham. He married a teacher. I also saw a few "Sisters of Charity, St. Vincent De Paul Order" on the beach. They remembered me & called me a "Homing Pidgeon" lal... There are apartment houses where St. Joseph Hall use to be but the "Stone Wall" is still there. I have soooooooooo many membries to share with anyone from Joey's. I lived there from 1953 to 1971. My email address is squeeky2day@optonline.net Hope to connect soon.

       Linda Quinlan

For years, I have been haunted by the memory of this institution. My brother, Michael was 9 yrs. old, I was 5 yrs. old, my sister Karen was 3 yrs. old and my brother John was just a little baby when we were placed there. The boys and girls were separated of course and I only got brief glances of my older brother at meal times and at church. I never saw my baby brother at all, except when my grandparents would visit, then we all got to see each other. Before being placed there , I had no idea what brutatity was. The abuse by the nuns was atrocious. I and my siblings lived in fear every day. There's one nun whom I will never forget. Her name was Sister Marie Philomenia. My sister and I secretly called her Sister Marie Full of Mean. I could go on and on about the barbaric treatment imposed on us by these alledged people of God. I did have one saving grace while there, however. Her name was Beth. I do believe she may have had a twin sister ( I can't remember for sure but it does stick out in my memory for some reason). She was one of the big girls, appox. 13 yrs. old. In the early evening before bed, she would fuss over me, brush my hair and talk sweet to me. I have thought of Beth many, many times over the years and have always loved her and held her close to my heart. Beth, if by some miracle you read this, I want you to know how grateful I was that you cared about me. You made a lasting impression on my life. I will never forget you. Love Forever, Linda This post is updated with a new e-mail address.

Looking for anyone who was with me and my 3 brothers & 1 sister at the Brook Farm Home in West Roxbury Massachusetts during 1948 through 1952. It was a group foster home, 10, 15, 20 kids? I don't remember. It was run by the Lutheran Church, but in charge of daily operations were Eva & Henry Kogal with several live in adult helpers. I was 5 when I first arrived there. My siblings names were: Edward, Janet, Paul, Walter and me Ken. I remember names like, Aunt Jane, Uncle John, Jean Stewart, Paul Stewart, Laurie, Pip, Kippy & others that escape me right now. I found the whole experience pleasant, no horror stories here. My older brother & sister report the same. I hope someone from that period at Brook Farm Home will read this. Hope also you will e-mail me. Ken Bagley barrycounty2006@webtv.net

       Reaching back through the mist of Lost innocence

Where is this beginning? Here, I am revealing some long held memories of trusting an established belief system and finally realizing that there were some truely evil individuals, responsible for and in assisting in the development and well being of young children. I was actually 'raised', in the Orphanege from a baby till two months past my eleventh birthday in 1963.........That was just after, I was taken by a man named Mr Schaffer, to the American Musuem of Natural History in New York City, to establish my ethnicity by an anthropolgist named Dr. Shapiro. He determined that I should be considered 'legally white' and this 'solved ' a recurring problem of not being adopted by a white family. Prior to this anthroprologocal ethnic assay, the Mother Surperior would advise prospectiove adopting families of my questionable ethnic background. As a result of my ethnic 'purity' label, I was placed with an italian catholic family with there own agenda. After they abused, beat and humiliated me. They acused me of stealing 5 dollars and beat me viciously, which left me mistrusting and physically scared me. They successfully sired a child of there own; and I was shuttled off to a NJ state half-way house in Burlington, NJ. As you might know from your own personal this is the proverbial tip of that deceitful Iceberg of Life. I am working at facing my memories and perhaps this will help others to see that these things are worse than fiction...More will be revealed as I become enabled by further thought.

Hi girls I also was raised at ST.Joe's. I was a resident for 14yrs. I even shared a bedroom with Kathy Danchak at one time. My name then was Lillian Feliciano. I left to go live with my father in coney island with my younger sister Milagros Feliciano. I am 53 now and had 6 kids(all grown up now)and I now live in Florida. My sister Millie still lives in Bklyn. and my other sister Socorra who also was raised in ST. Joe's lives in Puerto Rico. Socorra's last name was Rivera at that time she was married and had 2 kids. Millie never married and had 4 kids. I did get married and had 3 girls and 3 boys My husband passed away 7 years ago so I have a lot of time to think about my times at St.Joe's and the girls I grew up with. I often wonder whats become of them. I have recently tried to get in tough to find out that the home was torn down and replaced with apartment buildings. I would love to get in touch with my Best friens Regina Lutz other wise known as Regina Alamieda(her married name) anyone that wants to keep in touch can reach me at my E mail address lillyfell@earthlink.net Take care it's good to see that we can still reminiss with eachother and that we are not alone.

       Kathy and Debbie Danchak, Carmen Lorenzo and Carolyn Johnson

I was at the home from 1956 to 1970 in sister Dian's group was the last group that I was placed in I was 16 yrs. when I left with my younger sister to go live with my father. I also remember the summers we went to SHOREHAM in long island. The beautiful times on the beach,and every sunday when our families would come down to visit us. we stayed in cottages with at least 12 girls to each cottage with a counselor that slept at the end of the cottage,and a nun in the small room with her own bathroom,while we all managed to share one. and how we used to eat in the main building for lunch and dinners. The races we had and games we played. Movies we would see. And how some of us would walk to Little Flower(another home in long island)along the beach and the summer dances when boys were invited.camping,swimming. I remember it all. I look back on my childhood now and I realise that we kids at St. Joe's had it better then most of the kids on the outside. We got to go to the circuis,the ice capades,madison squar garden for the shows,movies and more. Many of the kids that I met on the outside never went to any of these placeses except the movies. Thank god for St. Joseph and the nuns and the many organizations that helped keep them going for so many years and helped so many children. Without them who knows how many of us kids would be alive today, or even have gotten a decent education.

St Michael's


       

I am trying to find anyone who remembers a James Raymond or Mary Catherine Lane. They were placed in this orphanage until a family member realized they were there and sent them a way to escape (so to speak). My father has passed away but the stories he would tell regarding the treatment of children was awful. He would always talk about one nun that he would have loved to have come across when he got older just to prove he made something of himself. He said they were belittled and abused and that people on the outside knew of these events and did nothing. I want to know why the records of the children placed there cannot be released to families. These people who suffered at the hands of the people who were supposed to be a firm believer in God deserve to be revealed to the public. If you abuse your child today you are on the front page of the news. Why should these people be remembered as good people when they were nothing more than a place to abuse and emotionally terrorize children. I have looked on every website and like always when there is a cover up there is no information to be found. I would appreciate any information I could recieve. My father did reveal that he had several friends and he died at age 73 in 2000. I don't know if anybody can help but anything is worth a try. He was the greatest person I knew and my life was the best thanks to him. This is for him. He faced everyday with a laugh and courage but the pain he suffered should never have happened. He was approximately 10 or so when he went in and I don't know how many years he was there. Thank you.

Hi Bonnie, I really didn't exspect to hear back from anybody so soon. I'm glad that I did. It's good to hear from you. I miss those days back at St. Joes too. I had good times and bad times their. I prefer to think of the good times. My only real bad times were when sister Diane was in charged of the high school division and when she took over the whole place. She ran it down to the ground(thats just my opinion). I still can't believe that they closed the place down. I remember Rosita Bourbon and her sister Lillian Bourbon, Debbra Hodges, Caemen Flores, Mary Balinni, Maria Gonzoles, Nellie Gonzoles, Carmen Perez, LuLu Lorenzo, Bernidett Petters, Martha and Anna Mureal, Terry Gillis and lots more I just can't think of all their names right now, other wise I'd be going on and on forever. So Bonnie hows life been treating you? I hope good. Its been pretty fair to me. I never had to really work hard. I Live hear in sunny Florida. Have my own home(one family) 2 cars and still 2 sons living with me. I guess that a gods send because then I really be alone. My oldest girl Jessica lives in bufflo NY and my other 2 girls live in the state of Georga, and my youngest boy lives hear in Tampa Fl. I miss them very much. My youngest is 22yrs. and the oldest is 34yrs. Do you have any kids? I would like to know whats happen to you guys and how life had been. I know that when I left the home I had a hard time makeing friends. I was called the white puerto rican girl, because I couldent speak spanish and they said that I acted like a white girl. I lived in puerto rico for a year and learned to speak spanish so that I could talk to my mother who coulden't speak english. Now I hardly get to speakl spanish. Not many spanish families hear where I live. My kids dont speak spanish but they understand a little. and thats because when my husband and I fought we did it in spanish so they wouldn't know what we were fighting about.

I am looking for any one who was connected to St. Mary's Home for Girls between 1934 and 1948. The girls who were living there at that time were called, "The Old Girls" because they were the first group of girls to be in St. Mary's. My Mother, Florence Marie Wells McKenzie was one of "The Old Girls" and I would love to know if anyone has any pictures of my mother as a child or could share any memories of her with me. She passed away on June 25, 2005. Mom never spoke about the home much but she did mention several names over the years: Tay Brown - Sister Leona - Rosie Sullivan - Myrt Sullivan - Gloria (married name Shell). I would love to hear from anyone who may have spent time with my Mother or can share any information they have. Please feel free to e-mail me if you would like to share some stories or have photos. Thanks So Much, Theresa Graff

       Debra Girls at the home 2/2/5/07

Hi Debra, I was reading on of your letters and yes I remember Elise Vasquez, (tall skinny feckles on her nose, she also had an older sister but I can't remember her name) Evelyn and Elise Moreno (sisters) they also had a little sister who's name is Lillian Moreno, (who was at the home), Maria and Nellie Gonzales (sisters), Mary Belini, Debra Hodges, Angie, I remember a kathy but I am not sure if it's your sister. Me and my sister Margie always hunged out with Elise Vasquez, Evelyn Moreno, Elise Moreno and Nellie Gonzales. In the late 80s early 90s I use to bump into Nellie Gonzales. At the time she was working in a meat market where she and I lived. Her children was going to the same school as my children. As a matte of fact when her daughter became a teenager she was hanging out with my son (Hector) who is now 28 years old. I have sad news to tell you but Evelyn Moreno passed away. Elise her I hear stuck up sister married a wealthy man and lives in Long Island. I heard that Evelyn used to call her but she did not want to bother with her. Sad, right. I moved out of my old neighborhood and lost contact with Nellie. She's the one who told me that Shoreham was going to be a nuclear plant. I would like to hear from you to talk about the times in the home. PS for those who is reading this my name is Carmen Medina and my sisters name are Margie Medina, Migdalia Medina and Angie Medina.

        To Carmen Lorenzo St. Joseph Hall 12/26/07

To Carmen Lorenzo I was reading your e-mail to Lillian Feliciano and was laughing because I do remember when naming the mountains. Chocolate mountain lead to the camping site. When we went camping we would run down at night and go swimming while the counselors made out. It was lots of fun. I also remember the big rock. we use to climb it. One day we discover by the wooded area of the beach some steps made of log a group of us and the counselor went up to discover a house a lady came out and offered us water. We laughed because she was an elderly lady and we was saying that she look like a witch. I remember the softball area, at the end it had a change with a sign saying keep out. That's where we use to go through to go camping and if you kept going the trail would lead you to the road where the entrance to Shoreham is. Me and my sisters were at the home from 1963-1970. My name is Carmen Medina and my sisters name are Margie Medina, Migdalia Medina Angie Medina. Hope to hear from you ASAP. Hi, Me and my sisters also grew up in St. Joseph Hall and have fond memories. I do remember Shoreham and it was fun. You mentioned a Billy. I remember a counselor name Chickie who had a brother Billy and they had a house down the road near the entrance of Shoreham. I also remember the church on the small hill near the road. right next to cottage 9 and 10. Boy do I have so many memories. We are like family because even though we talk to people about our experience at the home, no one will understand more than us. That's one thing we all have in common. I would like to get together with Delia, Kathy, Debra and you and your sisters. My name is Carmen Medina and my sisters name are Margie Medina, Migdalia Medina and Angie Medina I like to hear from you soon. Hope this is what you meant.

St Dominic's Orphanage Blauvelt, New York
1926 - 1943

       

I am hoping that someone who may have been in St. Dominic's between 1926 & 1943 will email me. My mother and her 3 siblings were all brought there by their father who didn't speak english and couldn't provide for them any longer. Their mother was sick with TB and passed away shortly after they were admitted into St. Dominic's. I never met anyone from my mother's side of the family and was told by her that after her mother died, relatives raised them. It was a lie that I couldn't understand until I read some of the postings about that place and the cruel inhumane treatment that was given. I managed to trace down a cousin in NY that was told a few more things by her mother, my mother's sister, so I wrote to St Dominic's and they mailed me back 33 pages of information on all of them. I know this was a long time ago, but if there is anyone that was there during that time or maybe had a parent that was there, maybe we could share some thoughts. I just need someone to talk to about this and maybe get some closure on it. The names of the people in age order are: Mary, Helen (my mom), Stanley, & Sophie. Hope to hear from somebody.

       ADOPTEE SEARCHING FOR SISTER

I was born, I think, June 12, 1946. I grew up in Cabin John/Glen Echo, Maryland. At first, at age 15, I thought I had found all the information but I was wrong. I have memories of being in what seems to be like an orphanage. It was like out of the westerns on tv. I can recall looking at this lady who is holding a child who looks like me. I look past them and can see at the top of the stairs a hallway that goes to the left and to the right. I can also see doors to rooms. At the bottom of the stairs there is a hallway to the left and the right and that is it. The only information I have about my sister is that her name is Linda. I believe we are twins. I weighed 2 lbs and 3 oz at birth and was born at 1:23 a.m. I remember seeing my birth record # which is 08498. If you were born between 1945-47 and your name is Linda. If you have questions about your background and you believe you have a twin, please contact me. You may contact me for a photo but please, if you have a photo of yourself, go ahead and send it first. I am Cherokee/Scot- Irish/Jewish.

St Joseph Hall, 735 Willouby Avenue, Brooklyn, New York
1957 till 1965

       Bonnie Creegam, Lillian Vazquez & Delia Smith:St. Joseph Hall 735 Willouby Ave

I don't know if you remember me (Eileen Markoe). My sister's (Debbie and Dana)and I were in St. Jospeh's from 1957-1965. Late this afternoon I was going for a walk and passed a building that always reminds me of St. Joseph Hall, and for the first time I thought, 'why not see if I can find some photos of St. Joseph's on the internet.' Well, much to my surprise I came across this website. I, too, have wondered what happened to the people that I had grown up with. What ever became of Mary Ryan, Janice Malichuck, Rosa Bourbon, Rosita Lopez, Marilyn Webb, Irma Alverez and all the people I shared my childhood with? I am now 57 years old, married to a German and living in Germany. It was so interesting to read the memories of the woman that had lived at St. Joseph's as children. I surely remember Shoreham, Long Island fondly with the Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry mountains. Funny isn't it, when one is a child a puddle can look like a lake, or a hill a mountain. And as walked passed this building today that reminds me of my childhood, I wondered if St. Joseph's was really as big as my inner child's memory...

       To : Eileen Markoe

Hi Eileen, I dont remember you, but I remember some of the girls that you mentioned in your e-mail on this sight. Most of the girls that left St. Joey's have gone on with their lives and chose not to look back. But some of us like to chat or leave messages on this sight for each other. Rosita Bourbon the last time was ages ago that I talked to her. She was living with her father and daughter in the Bronx and doing well. But that was more then 25yrs. ago. I don't know or heard from any of the other girls you mentioned in your e-mail. I don't think that most of them even know about this web cite. But we are all looking for some old friends from the home. Keep trying you might get a bite from someone you do know. I found this cite purly by chance, and I'm sure many more orphans will. Give my best to your sisters they might remember me and my sisters, or maybe not. It dosen't really matter dose it. Thanks for the info on the photoes I'm shur that many of the girls will be in touch with Mr. McNamara. Hope you and your family are doing well. God bless Lillian Vazquez/Feliciano

England
1915 onwards

       

My two GreatUncles and one Great Aunt,were bought up by Dr Barnados, following the death of their father and, possibly,their mother, in 1915. I,understand,they were kept as a family unit, throughout the whole time. They were,also, "three little steps" - only a very short period of time seperated the eldest from the youngest. I remember them well,as adults from my own childhood days. Now, I would like to find out a little more of their "history", to include in my own family research.They were born after 1905 but before 1914, in St Ives Huntindonshire (now Cambs,) Their names are as follows - WILIAM LINCOLN aka Billy ROBERT LINCOLN " Bobby ELIZABETH LINCOLN " Betty Is there anyone out there who has any information especially their "offspring" - I would dearlylove to hear from you1.

Well I finally get to find this website by accident. I am not computer literate, but I went into search and found this site. My name is Yasmin Medina and my sisters name are Maria Medina and Becky Medina.I remember most of you expecially Lillian and Debbie Danchak. I also have fond memories of St.Joes. My sister Maria has a better memory than me . My sister Becky is a singer in California and she does impersonations in Las Vegas. I live here in Miami Florida, I work for the School Board and my sister Maria Medina is living in Brooklyn N.Y. I want to hear fromall of you. I rememeber Sister Diana when I caught her without her veil. We used to play jokes all the time. I remember singing church songs and playing the guitar in church most mornings. I kissed my first boy out side in the back of the building, remember the bowling ally and the candy machines that never worked. lol. I remember the dances when we had to leave our shoes in the middle of the floor and the boys would pick the shoe then they had to dance with that girl. I am not ashamed to say that I was brought up in the home. The only thing I regret was that I was not street smart at the time. We were so isolated that when we finally did come out of the home at the age that we did. The outside world was hard to adjust too. I'll write more later, I just want to make sure you guys remembered me. God Bless

Hi Debbie, Lillian Carmen Lorenzo I am writting in behalf of my sister Maria Medina. She was so happy when I told her about finding you guys on the web. She asked me to give her e- mail address to who ever wants to get in contact with her. If anyone has information on Linda Bachman and Rebecca Smart she would like to hear from you. She also told me to tell Carmen Lorenzo she remembers you real well. My sisters and I have fond memories of the home. I am who I am because of my upbringing.We must all praise god everyday of our lives for the love he instilled in us and the way we were brought up. I learned not to have hate in me and learned to truly love and appreciate life to its fullest. Sometimes I get angry with someone and want to leash out at them, but then I remember what I was taught in the home. We were all special in gods eyes and still are. We must never look back and regret what happened or why were we put there. Everything happens in life for a reason, and I know now that if I was not raised in the home, I could of turned out with a child at a young age or been on drugs or been in jail. But my faith in God always took me further. I am now 52 years old and I am so proud to say that I was raised in a church. I was around 12 years old when I almost died on Christmas day. I wanted to spend the day with my mother but I was sick in the infermory with a fever and severe bronchitis. My mom asked the nuns if I could come with her for the day. They told her I was able to go but I had to stay in bed. I went with my mom and my sister to my aunts house. I stayed in bed and opened my gifts. I was left alone in the bedroom , when I couldn't breathe my lungs was closing up I was to weak to cough up the flem that was stuck in my chest. I was scared and ran to the Living Room where my mom was. She and everyone else were screaming to me what's wrong Yasmin, I felt my air leaving me and as I was falling to the ground clutching my chest. I felt a sudden calm. I wasn't nervous anymore I felt at peace with myself. I suddenly felt a strong breeze or wind come into my body, lifted me up from the floor and the next minute you know I was thrown against the wall and coughed up blood and flem from my chest. You see I was on the floor just about dead and it was god's spirit that lifted me from that floor. My mom told me my eyes were white when I was on the floor. It was then I realized it wasn't my time to go. God had something else better for me in life. I went to the emergeny room that night and my mom says she could not believe what she saw. She asked me what did I feel. I told her I felt a strong breeze enter my body and this breeze gave me the strenth to get me up from the floor. I am telling you this because we are all special in gods eyes, we are here for a purpose and our faith in him will guide us always. Each and everyone of us has the ability to achieve what we want, not always when we want, but when God wants. Every morning when you wake up you pray that he has given you another day and make the best of it. You never know when it will be your last. Miss you all God Bless You

Saint Paul Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum - Pittsburgh, PA.
approx 1875 - 1880

       

I'm looking for information on my great grandmother Margaret (Maggie) Hampton Hammill and her sisters Lizzie, Annie and Cate Hampton. Maggie might not have lived there but Annie is listed as a boarder at the orphange in 1880 and I think Lizzie might have been there before 1880. I'm not sure if Cate (Catharine)Hampton was ever there.

North Georgia - Probably Stephens or Hall Counties
After 1877

       

I'm looking for any orphanage records for North GA. I've just found out my g grandfather, James Lonzo "Lonnie" Boyd, may have been adopted either in Hall Co., GA, or Stephens Co., GA, sometime after he was born in 1877. Lonnie was raised by James B. and Mary A. Boyd of Hall Co., GA, and he died in 1934 in Toccoa, GA. While I knew for many years Lonnie was not directly descended from James & Mary Boyd, I've only recently been told by an older relative that Lonnie was adopted. I was told Lonnie's parents were both killed in a buggy - train collision, but I don't know how old Lonnie would have been at the time. I'd be grateful for info on orphanages in that area would be very much appreciated as I know absolutely nothing about those institutions.

I'm looking for any orphanage records for the St. Joseph Orphanage in Washington, GA. I believe my g grandfather's (George Washington Wheeler) brothers Harry Wheeler and Aaron Wheeler may have been placed in that orphanage in the late 1800s. I understand the brothers may have been placed in the orphanage after the marriage separation of their parents, James Wheeler and Flora Jones. I'd be grateful for info on that orphanage as I know little about it. E-mail to me at dale30809@aol.com, dale30809ga@aol.com, or dale30809ga@yahoo.com, Dale Boyd, Evans, GA.

St. Michael's Orphanage, Hopewell, NJ
about 6 years

       

Mutchko, Keminsky,Baptised at Saint's Peter & Paul Church in Ambridge, PA. My dads name was John Joseph Mutchko (of course we have had several names on several pieces of paper from his past but Mutchko appeared mostly). My dad had a sister Anna and 2 brothers Frank & George. Frank and George had the last name Keminsky as there father married our grandmother after her first husband died. We did find Uncle Frank thanks to the Arch Dioces in Trenton that referred us to Catholic Charities in Red Bank NJ. Uncle George passed away before we got to meet him and we never did find his sister Anna. According to the admissions card from St. Michael's Orphanage, (yes I have the original card) The man that put my dad and his brothers into this orphanage was John Keminsky (my dads stepfather). My dads father John Mutchko died in 1919, one year after my father was born. Anna's age is listed with my dad's so we don't know if they were twins or not. If ANYONE has any information about this situation please please contact me as soon as possible. My grandmothers name was Martha Mutchko Keminsky, she died in 1927. I look forward to hearing from anyone with any info. Thank you, Diane Mutchko Ambrosio

St. Joseph Hall 735 Willoughby Ave. Bklyn,N.Y.11206
1956-1972

       

This is for anyone that was raised in a catholic orphanage in the New York City area. I think that the catholic church should be ashame of themself exploiting the only memories that some of us have of our childhood. Charging $15.00 a photo for some precious memories to us is outragious and greedy, and should know that people see just how selfish and greedy the catholic church has gotten all these years. I grew up in St. Joseph Hall at 735 Willoughby Ave. Brooklyn N.Y. I spent 14yrs. of my life along with my sisters in that place. I have good memories and bad memories of St. Joseph hall. Some of which I am not proud to talk about. I would prefur to remember the good things that St. Joseph has done for me and my fellow childhood sisters(friends). Most of us fellow orphans can't aford to pay $15.00 a photo to have some kind of childhood pictures to have for our own children to have a glimps of how life was for us. I think it's apalling just how we orphans are being subjected to this kind of fleesing from the church and the city of N.Y. for allowing this kind of behavior of treatment to orphans that are now adults to continue exploiting and demeaning our childhood memories for CASH. SHAME ON YOU AND THE CITY OF NEW YORK FOR PUTTING MONEY BEFOR US ORPHANS Mrs. Lillian Vazquez/Feliciano

I was in St. John's from fall of 1950 thru late 1953. I remember the nun we had was Sister Mary Monica, she was so nice. When I turned 7, I had to go upstars and leave my younger sister on the first floor. If anyone was in the orhanage at this time, please send me a note. I particularly remember a girl who had one only half an arm (not sure what side). She was so kind one time when I was scared by a nightmare. I went to see the building (Condo's) in 2001, there was enough there to satisfy my obcession to see it again. I can rest now.

St. Vincent Orphan Asylum, Louisville, KY
1928-1946

       

I had a somewhat positive life experience in the orphanage. I now have three children and 7 grandchildren. When my children relate their problems with their children to me, I always reply that all children should grow up like I did. It made me strong and independent. Of course, everything wasn't perfect, but then life isn't perfect no matter whose life we're discussing. Most of my problems occurred when I worked my way through highschool living at Mt. Mercy Boarding School in Pewee Valley, KY. There was an extremely abusive nun there who sort of made my life miserable. I coped and got beyond that when I left at age 17, got a job and made my way in the world. In my early years, I learned morality and accountability. These lessons have stayed with me all my life. I learned that nuns are nuns and all are just people. Meaning some are good and some not so good. I was very lucky and my life has been fulfilling. I want to say thank you to all the people who were helpful to me during the years when I was growing up. I especially want to thank my social worker, Mrs. Harriet Broderick, of Louisville, KY. I believe God sent her into my life. I know she is long dead, but I've never publicly thanked her for all she did for me. This is all I have to say,hope it is helpful to a few who may read it.

I would love to hear from any one who was in the"home" from the time span as I was. I remember some of the Sisters; Sister Thecla Sister Mary Catherine SISTER AMELIA Sister Regina There were two house mothers, Mrs Smith and Mrs. Nicolas. I, at first was in the group, called The DePauls, and then went into The Seatons. The Chaplains were Father Watson and then Father Willenberg, who is now the Pastor of St. Agnes Church, in Utica. I'm sorry, but He is a Monsignor. Some of the girls that I remember are as follows: Ellen Fahy, Rita Pierkowski, Sharon Armstrong, Meredith Barber, Frances Carpenter, June and Sally Witchley. I had a younger sister named Donna who was in St Joseph's Infant Home, also in west Utica. When she turned of age, she was then placed in St. John's and was put in the group, called the Zoes. It was on the bottom floor. The DePauls and The Seatons were on the 2nd. and the 3rd. floors. So any one who was at the "Home" on those dates, pleaSE CONTACT ME AT bepe4363@yahoo.com. Sincerely Barbara Evans , Sharon Armstrong Rita Pierkowski Meredith Barber

Father Watson was the chaplain in 1950-? and then Father Willenburg, who is now Monsignor, at St. Agnes Church, in Utica,N.Y. Some girls, I remember are Rita Peirkowski, Ellen Fahy, Sharon Armstrong, Meredith Barber and Frances Carpenter. I remember all the fun we had. Swimming in the pool,ing on the playground, with the gazebo, all the arts and crafts.,so much!!! I remember the large kitchen on the first floor and the dumb waiter that brought our meals to each floor. I had a sister who was also there. she was in the "Zoes" and I was in the "Depauls" and then the "Seatons" I was 12 years when I left there, but I will always remember "THE HOME" It was a very important part of my life. Oh yes we must not forget the hugh hill we use to sled down. and the roller skating we did in the coutryard. There is so much to write about, I could go on forever.

St. Mary's Orphanage in Nashville, TN
6yr 1958-1964

       

I am looking for other kids that were in the orphanage with me. I have fond memories for St. Mary's and would like to find others that share the same. When I first came to the orphanage@ the age of 12yrs, I had just arrived from Germany and spoke no English. We learned how to work and earn the things we got. My good friends were the care takers, The Rowenzaks.Others that I remember were: Oscar Galliger, Bobby Galliger, Shirley Perry,Robert Crenshaw, Bobby Clubs,Christain Tiet,Clara Sue Davis. During my time the Head Nun was Sister Mary Margaret and Sister Mary Patrick, Kitchen Head Nun was Sister Martha Ann. My fondest memories were working in the fields, shooting marbles on the playground, working Mondays @ the laundry( with no school), swimming in the creek behind the orphanage, going in the summers to Camp MaryMount & going to the movies @ the Bellmeade Theater (if you were good by the Nun's standards).

Catholic Orphanage System Philadelphia,, PA
1898 ?

       Mary McCarty placed in orphanage system as a toddler

I am looking for any and all information regarding my maternal grandmother Mary McCarty. She was born in 1896 and was the daughter of McCarty/Rountree marriage, she was an only child. Her mother died when Mary was very young, her father could no longer care for her, and put her in the Catholic Orphanage system in the city of Philadelphia, PA. She never knew her exact day of birth, but it is listed as 1896 on documents. Her father's first name might have Bill, we are not sure. I think her mother's name was Elizabeth Rountree. If someone could tell me how I can search through this system, I would be very grateful. Mary did go onto marry William McEntee, she just never knew her past. I would like to finally put it together for all of the family. Thank you, Debra Grosso rosetreeme@gmail.com

Also, some of the children I knew were Leanna Stubbs(she had three brothers), Pam, Desi and her sister Teresa, and Irene (had three brothers). My name was Betty Collier. The first time I was there I was about four years old. The second time I was there I was in first grade. Due to Epilepsy I was sent to the Children's Medical Center. My oldest brother Donnie lived on the boy's side and my two little brothers, Joey and Danny, lived in the nursery.

I am researching my family history on my mother's side, and just recently found a US census report from 1920 stating that she (viola glover) lived at the orphange with her older sister May and younger sister Anna. I can not find any information at all on this orphanage, or even it's existence. I don't know how long she was there, I know she was married by 1930, but I also have no idea what happened to her sisters. If anyone has any information at all about this orphanage or my great-grandmother, I would greatly appreciate it, and would love to hear from you. Thank you, Kelly

Tennessee Children's Home Society or St. Peters Orphanage/Memphis, TN
1940's

       

I was born in 1938, Shelby County, Memphis, TN. I was in an orphange( I think it was called Tennessee Children's Home Society) which burned down...it was run by a woman by the name of Georgia Tann who was being prosecuted for stealing something like 3000 babies and she was adopting them out of this Adoption agency...She died and therefore, it was never proved. I just found out that I had siblings...two brothers and one sister. I don't know if they were also put into the adoption agency along with me or if they ended up in another ophanage, possibly St. Peters in Memphis. I would like to find out anything I can about St. Peters Orphanage in Memphis, not the one in New Jersey. If anyone out there was from this same ophanage or any past employees of one of these orphanages, it would be greatly appreciated if you would contact me. I'm approaching 70 years old so the sooner the better. Thanks for your help...

Catholic Orphanage East Saint Louis
1920's

       

My Dad and his Sister were sent to a catholic orphange in East Saint Louis when he was 6 years old and his sister was 3 years old. My dad was born 1913 so I assume it was around 1919 0r 1920's when they went there. They were sent by train from Western Kentucky to this orphange. I am tryig to find out more about the orphanage and there for gain more knowledge about my Dads past. He ended up running away from the orphanage when he was around 14 or 15 years old. He then hopped trains and traveled all over the US before finding his uncle back in Western Kentucky and lived with them and helped them work the farm. He went to school and church and got a second chance at life and thats how he ended up meeting my mother and marrying her and later became a Baptist Preacher. I am the last of 9 children and would love to find out more about Dads family and his life. If anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks Carol Barendregt

Louisville, Jefferson Co., KY
Late 1950's to early 1960's

       

I have some pictures of a pretty little girl about 2 yrs. old perhaps 1959 or 1960 who lived with my aunt and uncle, The Merideths in Louisville, KY for a time from the Louisville/Jefferson Co., Ky Orphanage. Her name was Jacqueline "Jackie" Mae? I'm not sure if this is her last or middle name. I remember her well when I visited my aunt and uncle and they took such good care of her but after a time she found permanent home I believe. I would love to share these pictures that my aunt and uncle treasured over the years. They both are now deceased. I know this isn't much to go on, but hope someone can give me some info on this Louisville orphanage or who I might contact in regard to Jackie. At two years old she had beautiful blonde hair, blue eyes as best I remember and my aunt would always keep her little brown shoes polished all the time and Jackie had one of those "Chatty Cathy" laughs that everyone loved. I want to let her know she was very much loved and cared for by my aunt and uncle when she was two years old. Can anyone help me to find her or her family? Carolyn Lewis Louisville, KY

Searching for others who lived at ST. VINCENT'S INFANT ASYLUM (on Reisterstown Rd. in Baltimore) or ST. VINCENT'S ORPHAN ASYLUM (on York Rd. in Baltimore) in the early 1960s. There is very little online about these orphanages. They closed their doors and were torn down in the mid-1960s. Me and my four sisters lived there before we were all separated and grew up in different families. ............... I am also searching for PHOTOGRAPHS of the original ST. VINCENT'S ORPHANAGES in BALTIMORE. Can you help? ............... I reunited with most of my sisters and our parents many years ago. However, I've never met my extended family in Baltimore. I would very much like to meet them! My father's name is Ed Allender and my mother was Betty Jean. Sisters were Judy, Nancy, Charlene and Rosita. Looking for grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc., but don't have any of their names. Any leads appreciated!

Cross & Crown Ministries
28

       

Dear Brother in Christ, “May the wings of peace rest upon thy dwelling and May Almighty God; bless thee with happiness and prosperity”. Greetings to you in the pious name of our Saviour Lord Jesus Christ. Sub: I. G.Cliffeson, Founder & President of Cross & Cross Ministries - Give Financial Support requesting of ***** I have had an opportunity to write a letter to you regarding my Ministry i.e. Cross & Crown Ministries (Bear the cross & Wear the Crown) Registered under Government of India. I enclosed here with proofs of Bi- Monthly Magazine and some pictures. I am very much interested in preaching the word of God, while helping the poor illustrate and also among the Idol worshipping Hindu religious people. Actually, I have a great vision of spreading the Gospel to the poor and needy and also to the novice of the word of God. Since India is a secular state and many religions of diversified doctrines are being preach. I deem it a great privilege to spread Gospel in Hindu Idol worship people. As Jesus Christ said to His disciples those who want to follow Him, let them deny themselves and take their Cross and go ye in to the entire world and preach the Gospel to each and every creature. Thus, we are going to rural and agency areas to spread the word of God through this Magazine and make them to come back to God and accept the Lord Jesus Christ as the savior to “Bear the Cross & Wear the Crown”. It is be solicited, in my Congregation So many people are suffering with financial need to continue their further studies and some of them are old aged, widows even they have no support from their families. I sincerely feel to give them a possible support to the utmost poor people, but I am helpless, because I came from a poor Family and my Father was fell sick and completely bed ridden, since 4 years. Nor I am receiving any support, assistance or any either locally or abroad. Our Lord God has saith “There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land” (Deut 15:11). “Defend the poor and fatherless! Do justice to the afflicted and needy. Delivery the poor and needy; rid them out of the hand of the wicked” (Ps 82:3, 4). “He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again” (Prov 19:17). “A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.” (Prov 22:9). Blessed is he who is kind to the needy” (Prov 14:21). Remember the word of God, how He hath said; more blessed to give than to receive. Give and it shall be given unto you. That is why; I resolved to follow the footprints of our saviour Lord Jesus Christ who served in the midst of poor people. This is the main reason to run the trusty in the name of Cross & Crown Ministries for the above said victims and to help the helpless and help the needy. God has performed many miracles in my life. He has stored for me to continue His service. So, I trusted Him and Depended on Him. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress my God in him will i trust. Make Him my habitation and taste the Love of God, the comforts and the peace of God, which he gives freely to all. I once again requesting you kindly give support to the Cross & Crown Ministries for Delivery the poor and needy. Secondly, I came to know that I am going to start an Educational Institute & Computer Coaching Centre in the name of “Stone Star” for the poor people, which are not able to pay the fees to Study. In addition, we are going to start an Orphanage Centre in the name of Cross & Crown Ministries. We now with a fond hope approaching you through this appeal to extend you are helping hand in a big way. Kindly put this issue in your closed-door prayers and do the needful for the orphans. We are praying for your Good health, long life & Spiritual prosperity and we request the same from you. I believed that the Holy Spirit dwelt in the hearts of believers and in the hearts of the righteousness, and that He heard all their prayers. Praise the Lord.

I would like to locate others who were living at St. Domenico or St. Domenic's as it was known as, too. I have a lot of good memories from those days in 1954 to 1958. Recently was in touch with one fellow from there. Is there an alumni group from this home? I would love to attend a reunion. I remember fondly the nuns: Sr. Elizabeth Marie, Sr. Mary Rose, Sr. Robert Thomas, Sr. Gregory, and many others. Remember making fudge and carmel with Sr. Elizabeth Marie. We would each get one small piece in wax paper to eat while we watched Shirley Temple movies. I loved that big old house and the grounds it sat on. It is still there. Enjoyed climbing the trees and playing in the sandbox all day long in the summer. (After we did our chores, of course.) Please contact me if you lived at ST. Domenico's Italian Home in St. Louis MO.

My Mother was born as Carlina Marie Stevenson in 1960. I'm looking for my Biological Grandparents. The only information that I know is that my Grandmother was 17 at the time she gave birth, and at that time, it was looked down upon to have a child at that age.(I think she was born in 1944) We have 3 pictures of my Mother as a baby to about 3yrs old. My Grandfather would have a tattoo on his left fore arm. (as in the only pics that we have) My Mother, upon addoption, took the name of angela (she said that the nuns called her little angel) but kept her middle name as a rememberence of her mother. My search has gone on for about 3yrs with no luck. If anyone has any information as to what direction I must go to resolve my seach PLEASE drop me a line. Than You

Hi, I was at St. Michael's as a child (between 1954 and 1956) and would like to know something about the history of the institution. I haven't been able to come up with anything so far, except that the building was supposedly torn down in 1982. Can anyone offer me any leads on St. Michael's? Thanks very much for any information.

Chapin Hall, Chicago, Illinois
1960s

       

I've spent my life thinking about my friend Denise Wilmot who lived at Chapin Hall in Chicago during the early 60s. I lived about 5 blocks from the orphanage, we walked to Budlong School together, and before my family moved to the northern suburbs in 1965, my mother arranged for Denise to spend the night at our apartment and I spent one night with her at Chapin Hall. I returned to Chapin Hall the moment I was old enough to drive myself there, but it was already 1972, and Denise was no longer there. I believe that the orphanage closed shortly thereafter. I believe that Denise had an older sister at Chapin Hall as well, and that Denise would now be about 53 or 54 yrs. old. I'm hoping to find you Denise and my prayer is that life has been kinder to you through the years. With love, Michele

Hello, I was wondering if anybody knew my father Lawrence (larry)Santmier. He was in an orphange as a child. I do not know which one. He took me there once when I was a child. It was within a cars rides distance from Philadelphia. A couple of hours I suppose.I remember a big red brick building,but i could be totally wrong about that. I was small at the time.The only thing he said to me was that he was glad that the children seemed to have a better life.And that it was brutal when he was there.If there is anyway to search for this info please contact me.

St. Aloysius in Rhode Island
1942-1944

       

Looking for anyone who may have been a resident or employee at St. Aloysius in Rhode Island. My father, David Duffy, and my two Aunts, Sheila and Gloria, were residents of St. Aloyisus from 1942 to 1944. They were placed there because my grandfather was divorced with custody of the children and he was in the Army and to leave the children when he was deployed. The children's mother (my grandmother) was an alocolic and was not able to care for the children. David was approximately 9 when he entered St. Aloysius, Gloria would have been about 11, and Sheila was only 3, so because of her young age she actually was sent to live at St. Vincent de Paul Infant Asylum. Side note, Gloria was my grandmother's daughter from a previous relationship - my grandfather was not her father, although he did attempt to get custody of her during his divorce - but to no avail. Any contact would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Nita, Goodness. It's really you! I was so happy to see what you said here. I hope you found the 12 Cuban Girls and the others that you hoped to find. By the time I saw this, your email address had changed, so I haven't been able to contact you. This brought up many good old memories. A lot of that was fine old times, that is to say "the good old days" of childhood. My little sister and I went to a deranged foster home which made it impossible for me to keep in touch. So, I hope you can find it in you heart to understand and forgive me that I stopped writing. Life must have been hard for you, too. I prefer to remember the many good things at St. Vincent's, especially the good nuns and you and all the kids from the home. I would love to hear from you, and may God go with you. Also, to any of the ones who lived there during that time--1956 to 1960, yes, I would love to hear from you, too. I remember you all with love, and may God go with you. Bernadette Young is my name. Also, to anyone who is reading these posts and happens to see this: I read a zillion of them, too. Remember, whether or not you find the ones who are like brothers or sisters to you, Jesus loves you more than anyone else could. May God bless and keep us all.

It would be so wonderful to hear from any of you, especially Juanita Mondonedo, the sweetest one I knew well and Linda Loveless or Lovelace, who was maybe a couple of years older and had so much personality and got such bad breaks, but was always kind to me. I remember the good nuns and every kid very vividly. Goodness, the drama; but, also, there were very many good things, the memories of which I will always treasure. You may remember me as Bernadette Young. Looking forward to hearing from you. May the Lord bless each and every one of you. Yikes, I really miss you now just thinking of this. *****

St Joseph Hall Brooklyn, NY
1954 to 1958

       

Hi to all who read this, I was in St. Joe's from Early 1954 to August of 1958. I was there with my 2 sisters Nora and Roberta, they are younger. I was in 2nd grade when I arrived and Sister Stella was my teacher, and I believe Sister Joseph was our division nun for awhile and then another Sister took her place and I was in the intermediate group when I came there. I later went to the Junior division and Sister Regina was in charge of this division and then Sister Bridgid hope I spelled their names right. Some of the girls I remember are Regina, Louisa very smart girls,and Joanne Ganzie this may be spelled wrong. I remember all the fun we had at Shoreham, the Knights of Columbus who came, visits to Macy's for shopping for Christmas,Connie Francis who was part of the entertainment that also came, the Circus, and Rodeo We used to have to watch Bishop Fulton J Sheen and Lawrence Welk with the Lennon Sisters. My sister started an epidemic of Scarlet Fever that had St. Joe's quarantined for awhile. These are just a few of the many things we were able to experience there, I made my First Holy Communion and Confirmation while I was there. I never realized how many things we had done until I left and I truly missed it and when my mom came to take us home for good I did not want to leave I was getting ready to move up to the Senior Division and really wanted to get away from Sister Bridgid I always seemed to be on her bad side, but I have the best memories of being there. If anyone remembers some of these things I would love to exchange emails with you. Jean

I am searching for any information about my mother,Alice Tritschler Raible,now 85 years old. She had a brother George (now deceased )and a sister Margaret (also deceased). When her parents died she and George were sent to St. Michaels. Margaret was an infant adopted right out of the crib. Mom's name then was Anna Murga and they tell me she was born in a place called Cairnsbrook, Pennsylvania. Of course Cairnsbrook has no information on her - lost in a fire or something. She just needs some closure to those awful years in that hell-hole. Were you there at about the same time? Did you perhaps remember her? Any information would be helpful.

Half orphanage Manhattan/New York City, USA
1937-1947

       

My mother-in-law lived in an orphanage called the Half Orphan Home or later renamed Stewarts or Stewards in NYC. She said it was on Manhattan street in Manhattan although she has some memory problems and this may be wrong. She was a resident there from 1937-1947. She is 80 years old now and I am trying to get as much information about this place. If you have any information about the home, or anyone that lived there during that time...I would appreciate hearing from you. She said that the kids from the home would summer in the Adirondacks in upstate New York. She has fond memories of her time in the mountains.

1949 - 1951 Approx.

       

I am searching for twin boys that were sent to Mt. Grundy Virginia approximately 1949 to 1951. Names were David and Donald. They were adopted by the husband of wife that were running the orphanage at that time. I am their sister and would like to find them. Any help would be appreciated. I notice the orphanage is now a school and I am not sure how to get any information from there. I will be 63 in April, and I think the boys should be in their late 50's.

St. Joseph's Hall
1961-1964

       

Searching for girls from St. Joseph's Hall at 735 Willoughby Avenue during the 1960's. I was at Maria Goretti Division under the rule of Sister Meriem Lucy, Sister Edmund, Sister Rose Paul, Father Stouter, Father Finbar. The staff were Miss Robinson, Miss Florence. My teacher was Mrs. Keefe. I graduated with Marie Lopez, Angie Quiles, Martha Catala, Leticia Morales, Carmen Velez, Kathy Hamerick, Iris Valdivieso, Diane Gay,Lucy Rios, Patricia Green, Luz Caedona, Iris Miranda and Bernandette Szkotnicki. I absolutely would luv to connect with my peers from back in the day. While the days at St. Joseph were mostly tolerable for me for others there were brutal times. My memmories from Shoreham were for me wonderful.Spending that time away from the confines of St. Joe's were a great escape into the wonders of climbing Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry mountains. Swimming in the waters of the L.I. sound and crossing over to Wading River were truly wonderful experiences. I remember the dances,activities,camping and well just growing up! My e-mail is ramirezglory@aol.com if you would also like to share your memmories or try to connect. Hopefully someone out there has pictures of that part of my life.

It is very difficult to search the archives to see if anyone has tried to post a message to me. So please send me a response directly to: sandy@kerhin.com . Thanks. I was born at Martha Washington Home for Unwed Mothers . The problem I am having is that my Birth Mother knew my Mom and I believe she gave me to her " under the table " so to speak. On my records I received from the Salvation Army it shows the name Rose T. only as the Birth Mother. I don't think my Biological Mother could spell Topetzes. My Mother's maiden name was D'Amato, Rose. I was born September 23, 1946. If my Birth Mother is still alive or has any family, I would appreciate a reply to my email address. Thanks much, Sandra Kerhin Greendale, Wi.

They met and fell in love there. My Dad is Raymond Pinion and he had a brother Robert Pinion and a sister Martha Ann Pinion.

All I can say is Oh My God! Just last night I was at my son's house visiting and talking about so many different topics of life itself, when we just came across talking about St. Joseph's Hall. I am Evelyn Feal, my sister's name is Miriam Feal. Do you remember me? Miriam my sister just passed away just a few days ago on April 3rd, of an anurism in her brain. My son and I spoke about our childhood in the home for hours and we cried together. I went on talking about how I entertained Sr. Richard, Sr. Marguerite and the rest of the children in my division, St. Vincent De Paul. I would sing opera, Somewhere Over the rainbow, and other christmas songs. Do you remember Miss Shatner? The little christmas play we performed where Miriam my sis played as santa clause, god we were all small. I went into the home at the age of 6, and left at 13 yrs old, 1967. Remember another play about the "13 Little Colonies"? I was the 13th little colony. I remember most of the girls everyone's mentioned and all that kept coming out of my mouth was "oh my god, oh my god, I remember all of them!!" My son and I decided to go online to see if we can google St. Joseph's Hall and sure enough, we found you guys! Wow, what a surprise! I suddenly felt little all over again. One memory right after the other. Remembering Shoreham, L.I., running fast down the white long, long stairs to reach the beach way in the bottom of the stairs, then to see who can be the first ones to grab a color kickboard, remember??? Do you remember Pat Sweeney, our swimming instructor? Bruce Henry had the hots for her. They married and had kids I heard. I remember the WHITE TEAM and the BLUE TEAM! Going to The WORLD'S FAIR. The CARNIVAL. Going to campsites with REAL LIVE INDIANS DANCING FOR US! I just watched to my amazement and loved it all. I remember Elizabeth Santiago, Pat Owens, Pat's twin sisters Nancy Owens and Mary Owens, also Nancy Varela, my card canasta playing partner after "study hour" (after homework time). Also Martha Catala, she had the hots for my brother at the time. They actually dated later on. I remember the matrons that took care of us, Miss Eleanor, Miss Hazel and Miss Ann. Everyone hated Sister Richard. She used to hit us for any little mistake we made growing up. Also everyone was in love with Fred Punzo, do u remember him??? lol... He was gorgeous. There were rumors that he made out with Pat Owens underneath a stair case, lol.... God Bless Us All, Soooo so many memories, I wanna cry...feeling so emotional just remembering our little childhood. Looking forward to your reply, let me know if you remember me and my sis Miriam. Hope we can remain friends, your friend, Evelyn Feal.

I guess we will all come to find the orphan site if we realy want to find our old friends from the home. I thank god for this site. I tell my children stories about the home and somtimes I get the feeling they think Im making it all up. My son john sees me on the ophan site looking for girls from the home every so often. I live hear in sunny florida(although its not so sunny today) Yasmin Madina and Agnas Crews alos live hear too. I just talked to Agnas this saturday and she is doing fine. I tried to call Yasmin and email her but she hasnt answered either my calls or email. She has a new husband,so I guess she's busy with him and having fun. All my kids are grown up and moved out except my son John. He takes care of me, and helps me with my bills and the house. If you want to keep in touch my email is big.girlvazquez@yahoo.com. We can talk about the home. It was good hearing from you. LIllian

1919-?

       

I am searching for the records of Lucy, Eva and Cecila Gonzales, They were sisters and were placed in (I think the name is correct)"Sacred Heart Orphanage" in Pueblo Colorado around 1919, they lived in Trinidad Colorado. Their mother died of the flu and child birth, the baby Jose' and mother Juanita were buried together in the Garcia Cemetery in Trinidad Colorado. Their father Ricardo promised Juanita the mother he would place the girls in a orphanage so they would be safe, from what I heard so far it was not an easy life for Lucy. I have been working on the "Gonzales Family Tree" for about 30 years and would like to put a small story about the girls and their live in the orphanage. I you have any information please e-mail me at (be2450bo@aol.com)Thank You, Betty Gonzales

Looking for my biological older sister. She was raised by my maternal grandparents. I was adopted. I was born 09/14/27 in Syracuse, New York. The Cayuga County Department of Social Services handled the adoption on 12/18/27. I was very ill at birth. My birth name is Rosemarie Phillips. From records I have received, my mother was a cook and father was tenant farmer. My mother was deaf. She and my father ran away but where later found and she was returned home.

Hi Lillian , I happened to find the message board again and was happy to see you were still writing on the board. I wish I can remember the things you guy's remember, but I don't. I remember Shoreham and the home, but you guys remember names and all. I am really impressed. I'm fine. I got married, I have 2 dogs and my kids are doing fine also. I wish sometimes we can go back in time. We were so innocent then, and now life is so hard. I do remember when I used to sing in the curch with my guitar. I used to like putting on plays. I still sing but now in church.I have pictures of the home. I think it was you who sent it to me. I saved them on my computer.If you or anyone wants them, please e-mail me at jazzy525@gmail.com and I will send you what I have. I wish I could remember more, buI I do love reading your comments. Love Yasmin. My sister's name is Rebecca Medina

New York Foundling Asylum/Sisters of Charity
after 1862

       

I am looking for my GGreat Grandmother,Laura Ellsworth Britton born abt 1862 maybe New York.I can only find one notation for her in the 1900 census for Montana,Laura states that she is from the Foundling Asylum of New York and that she was born about 1862 New york.Laura somehow ends up in Illinois before 1900,maybe by the orphan train,I am not sure.I do know contact was made by her daughter in the early 1960's to someone in Illinois,whom that was I am unsure.It is thought by our family that the people in Illinois were relatives,but I have found no proof of that.Laura goes to Montana in the mid 1880's and Marries Daniel M Robeson in 1890 in Montana and she passes away in 1901.None of the relatives that would know are no longer alive.I know that the Sisters of Charity doesn't start up until 1869 or 1870,so I am estimating Laura;s stay at Sisters to be between 1869 and 1875.I also believe that Laura may have been of Irish descent.

My name is Arlene Parrilla I am looking for my biological family. The adoption document state that I was known as Arlene Gonzalez. I was born in Lincoln Hospital, Bronx, NY, 51 years ago a day like today (october 8 1958). My biological mother is from Puerto Rico and she was 17 years when I was born. Her father died on August that same year (1958)and my grandmother did'nt know from me until the day a was born. My biological mother wants to become a beautician, and I think she completed her high school between 1958-1960. She has an older sister married with to children and 5 younger sisters living in one apartment in Bronx, New York. A younger brother, about a year and a half died of an intestinal disorder in 1953. My biological mother has another brother incarcerated for burglary, serving a sentence of two to five year, at that time. My birth mother was described as being about five feet, slim, with black hair, brown eyes and an olive complexion. She signed surrender on October 23, 1959. I pray to the Lord someone feel identified with this information. Arlene

I'm looking for anyone who was in this orphanage during this time period. My twin sister, Dottie, & I were put there when we turned 6 years old. Our younger sister, Sharon, who was 5 years younger than us, joined us when she turned 6 also. The Sisters of Mercy took care of us. There were both boys & girls at this orphanage but none of us were orphans - we were all from broken homes. We attended the Catholic Grammer School located on Queen St. We left to live with our mother when I was about 16 - the orphanage closed in the 70's. The building was torn down & condos are there now. Would like to hear from others who lived there or want or need information about this orphanage. Email me at lmcrowley@cox.net. My name then was Linda Malverty.

I am looking for anyone who might have been at St. Joseph's for the Friendless in Chicago, Ilinois during the time from 1960- 1970. I am doing research from William Andrew Bordenkecher. William's father is Joseph Andrew Bordenkecher, his mother is Doris Marie Martinez. We do have a copy of the birth certificate. We have a copy of the marriage certificate. William was in St. Joseph's from about 1960 - 1970. He did go to a foster family surname KREMER. He was born in 1956 in Chicago, Illinois. He has a sister with the name Katherine, Catherine. The orphanage was run by the Catholic Charities. He did see a letter written by his mother, but all the important parts were blacked out by the nuns. He was not allowed to take the letter with him nor make a copy. We are looking for anyone who was in the orphanage at the same time as William or who knew his mother and/or father. Please contact me at bella7114@aol.com. God Bless. Cathy Kremer

I lived at the Queen Street orphanage for 4-5 years during the fifties. So did my brother Eddie Carlson, and my sister Kay. When I sat down and tried to remember some of the names of the other children, I came up with a partal list. If anyone is out there who remembers me or my brother or sister, I would like to hear from you. I am particularly interested in hearing what happened to my friend Sharon Lynch and her sister Sandy. I remember - Peggy Craft, Pat, Douglas and Robert South, Martha, Carolyn, Larry Jones, Arthur Devereaux, Eddie Mabry, Dottie and Linda Malverty. I also remember a Donna, and her brothers whose parents were from Puerto Rico. I remember a Judy Anderson and Linda LaFayette and a blond girl named Debbie. There was a Larry Willington and Buddy and Gerry Martin. I am sorry if I forgot anyone, but it has been 50 years and my memory is a little foggy at times. I have often wondered what happened to all those people with whom I shared paI don't know about anyone else.rt of my life. If anyone would like to get in touch, please feel free. I live in TN now, and the last time I was in Charleston was to bury my mother a year or so ago. I know the orphanage was torn down in the 70's. I also know that St. Cecelia lived at the retirement home on James Island. Other than that, I don't have any more info. Gail Carlson Cicutto

I live in TN now, and the last time I was in Charleston was to bury my mother a year or so ago. I know the orphanage was torn down in the 70's. I also know that Sr. Cecelia lived at the retirement home on James Island. Other than that, I don't have any more info. Gail Carlson Cicutto

120 Queen Street, Charleston, SC - Catholic Orphanage
1954-1959

       

I lived at the Queen Street orphanage for 4-5 years during the fifties. So did my brother Eddie Carlson, and my sister Kay. When I sat down and tried to remember some of the names of the other children, I came up with a partal list. If anyone is out there who remembers me or my brother or sister, I would like to hear from you. I am particularly interested in hearing what happened to my friend Sharon Lynch and her sister Sandy. I remember - Peggy Craft, Pat, Douglas and Robert South, Martha, Carolyn, Larry Jones, Arthur Devereaux, Eddie Mabry, Dottie and Linda Malverty. I also remember a Donna, and her brothers whose parents were from Puerto Rico. I remember a Judy Anderson and Linda LaFayette and a blond girl named Debbie. There was a Larry Willington and Buddy and Gerry Martin. I am sorry if I forgot anyone, but it has been 50 years and my memory is a little foggy at times.

philadelphia PA
1960s

       

As a child growing up in Philadelphia, Pa. my father and I used to go to an orphanage to take my outgrown toys. I remember there were nuns there. It was a very large house/mansion-looking building, with a very large, level front yard. There was a very low stone wall around it of the same stone as was used in the house. I believe it was greysish stone. If anyone has any idea about this orphanage, I would greatly appreciate it.

Saint Domenico Italian Orphans Home
1947-1952

       

Saint Domenico Italian Orphans Home 1931-1962 Theodore Salorgne House, 1340 Partridge Ave., University City, c. 1893 This modest three-story mansion with a small third floor that can be regarded as an “attic” was built in 1891 and 1892 by Theodore Salorgne, Jr. The house is built of quarried-stone and has or had a distinctive red Spanish-style clay-tiled roof. Built centrally on ten acres, the property also contained a barn, a root cellar, a chicken coop, a vineyard, flower gardens (Snapdragons) and several fruit-bearing trees; among them, persimmon trees as well as other large trees. The property was sold to the Sisters of Saint Mary in 1909. The building became a residence for retired and convalescing nuns. At that time, the St. Mary nuns debated whether a new hospital and convent would be built at the property. It was not. In 1926, working with the Women’s Retreat League, the house was converted into a retreat center. The building was sold once again after the St. Mary order had built a new hospital and convent on Clayton Road. The property was sold to the St. Domenico Italian Orphans Home. (1931- 1962) The Saint Domenico organization had been founded in 1921 through a bequest of Domenico and Maria Signaigo. Father Cesare Spigardi from St. Charles Borromeo Church, determined at the time that the bequest was not enough until 1925 when Mrs. Rosa Cafferata left in her will a bequest for the future St. Domenico to Archbishop Glennon. Mr. Cesare Chichizola, a Board member and his daughter (and graduate of St. Elizabeth’s Academy was a Precious Blood sister - Sister Mary Rose, C.pp.S) was placed at the new Orphanage. Due to the Orphanage being under the care of Sisters of the Most Precious Blood, whose mother house is in O’Fallon Missouri, she was assigned there. (The sisters were mostly from rural Missouri farming families of German ancestry.) The St. Louis Italian community was unsuccessful in getting an Italian order of nuns to care for the mostly Italian-American children at that time. By the late 1950s and 60s, the ancestry of the children were mixed. The Orphanage started with ten children in 1931 when the mansion was the only building. In those days, both the Sisters and the children lived in the original mansion. A first and former resident in 2008 said that it was quite hot during the stifling Summer when she and the other children lived on the third floor (or attic). She went on to say that Sisters were quite strict with the children. The Sister's bedrooms were on the second floor. The first floor consisted of two large parlors, a dining room, a small breakfast room, a staircase, a large foyer with a fireplace, a staircase with a magnificent stained glass window on the landing leading to the second floor, an utility room (Pantry) and kitchen. The basement of the mansion was basically laundry and storage. Access to the mansion is from Partridge Avenue through a stone arched gateway with double gates leading to a circular drive-way that circled around the buildings. The same drive led to a rear exit near the barn leading to Pennsylvania Ave. The two major roads were Page Ave on the north and Olive Street Road on the south. The stone gateway indicated painted lettering on its arched section: "San Domenico Italian Orphanage" or when the times changed; "St. Domenico Italian Children's Home. A stone statue of St. Dominic, founder of the Domincan Order of friars was installed in front of the mansion was a gift from Domenica Casaleggi, a California resident. The statute was the most pronounced feature standing in front of the Home. Saint Domenico attracted the support of many prominent families in the St. Louis Italian American community, and when it was able to build a 2- story chapel wing (that was added on to the rear of the mansion) in 1938, many of them contributed art-glass windows. The three Italian parishes in St. Louis were St. Charles Borromeo, Our Lady Help of Christians and St. Ambrose. Only Saint Ambrose Parish remains while the other two have been demolished. The first floor of the new building consisted of two dining rooms and the school room with the chapel on the entire second floor. The basement was used as an indoor play area and other events. In 1947, another building was built and that wing was connected by a mid- air walkway to the mansion on its north side. This 2-story stone building would be the new dormitory respectively for the boys on the first floor and the girls on the second floor. Each floor had a private bedroom for one Sister. The rather large basement was a playroom, laundry and other storage closets. The immediate neighborhood community consisted of middle class Jewish families, thus the Sisters and the children were the only Gentiles. It was not unusual to observe a Sister conversing with their Jewish neighbors. Another former resident living in Dallas, TX: "I would like to locate others who were living at St. Domenico. I have a lot of good memories from those days in 1954 to 1958. Recently was in touch with one fellow from there. Is there an alumni group from this home? I would love to attend a reunion. I remember fondly the nuns: Sr. Elizabeth Marie, Sr. Mary Rose, Sr. Robert Thomas, Sr. Gregory, and many others. Remember making fudge and caramel with Sr. Elizabeth Marie. We would each get one small piece in wax paper to eat while we watched Shirley Temple movies. I loved that big old house and the grounds it sat on. It is still there. Enjoyed climbing the trees and playing in the sandbox all day long in the summer. (After we did our chores, of course.) Please contact me if you lived at St.. Domenico's Italian Home in St. Louis MO. By the 1970s and the 1980s, the 2-storey barn, the chicken coop and other stand-alone structures (Gazebos) would be torn-down due to age. (One of the more prominent gazebo housing the Holy Family was a favorite for the kids who would hide and seek.) The root cellar was filled-in. The grape vin-yard was removed along with the original stone-arched gateway and gates. Some of the large Oak and Locust trees are gone. The statute of St. Dominic has long gone. The clay-tiled roof was replaced by either slate or shingle. By this time, there is nothing left to indicate that this was ever St. Domenico except the original Theodore Salorgne mansion. By 1961-1962, the Italian Orphans Home would close. Sisters Mary Rose, Elizabeth Marie, Timothy, Isabel and Gregory et al received the news of the closing of this rather unique institution. (Pictured above is Sister Julitta Maurer, one of the former teachers wearing the new habit adopted by Congregation of the Most Precious Blood sometime in 1961-1962.) The need for full-service orphanages decreased, and in 1962 the property became Mercita Hall, a Group Home for teenage girls who were not being served by foster homes. Mercita Hall was operated by the Sisters of Mercy and gradually was replaced by Marian Hall, another agency serving severely-disturbed and behaviorally-disordered youth. By this time, there were very few nuns left and most staff were lay-women with specialized training. In 1988 the property was transferred to the Archbishop of the St. Louis Archdiocese. It appeared that at one time, the property would be re-developed for housing. The original ten acres was laid out by as St. Domenico Court but it never happened. It was later subdivided by Mary Stock as Penn Park and Roberts Court after 1970 with the remainder of the property to be known as Good Shepherd Services for Children and Youth sometime in 2008 after its final consolidation of four pre-existing Catholic Service Agencies into one. As of Spring, 2008, new Construction of additional buildings to the rear of the former chapel /school room / dining room building (1938) is due to be completed in 2009. This expansion indicate that the property has become a small complex or campus consisting of 4 buildings providing numerous services for children and youth. The new building standing on the former vineyard and drive will attach itself to the chapel-wing building. The original mansion building, c1893; the chapel / school room / dining room building, 1938, and the dormitory building, 1947 will join the new building. All of the original founders and Nuns have died and most of the former children are now elderly. The memories are fading. Attention! Photos from alumni are welcome. Please, we need pictures of the Home, Sisters and any child that lived at Saint Domenico. Please contact pgenna2@juno.com Thank you. Current Alumni of SDIOH: As of 8/2007: Helen Catalin (1934-?)

Some orphanage in Indiana


       

Looking for information on my great-grandfather, John Franklin Champion. According to stories, he and his brother were placed in an orphanage in Indiana after his father and then mother (it is said she was a Cherokee indian maiden) died from typhoid in late 1870's early 1880's. He and his brother were in the orphange for several years before the brother was adopted by unknown people. This orphange would take the boys to work on farms. John loved farming and eventually just walked away from one of these farms and moved to the Tennessee / Kentucky area. I believe he may have been born in the Perry County, Indiana, area. John's father may have also been named John. John's mother: name unknown The family may have moved to Indiana from an eastern state. This is all the information I have, can anyone help?

I'm so sick of attempting to find my grandmother Ida Jane Wallace who was adopted by Hiram Wallace. She was born in 1874-1875 either in Pennsylvania or Maryland. She was adopted in 1876. It was rumored she was in a Pennsylvania Civil War Orphanage. If only the information was free! Why in the world after about 70 years after my grandmother died this information isn't free!!! I think it's unfair that the states don't release information on people or orphans that are over 100 years old, ie my grandmother would be about 135 years old now. Each state gets greedy and wants money for everything!! If you are not sure which state the orphanage, adoption or birth was you can pay thousands of dollars to states who just tell you after gaving them the money....oh, we don't find information. I think everyone who has listings from these old civil war orphanages aught to post it so their fellow orphan families don't end up spending thousands for information that should be free in the first place....after all you can get US census up to 1930!!!!!!!!

He would never talk about his childhood but it is my understanding that he was born to an unwed mother, raised in an orphanage near Cleveland, was adopted and later returned to the orphanage when his adoptive parents died. He was born on Dec 6, 1915. Please email me if you have any knowledge of him or his family. Thank you.

I am searching for my 3rd greatgranddaddy who died and left a son orphaned by 1880. We think he died in the yellowfever epidemic of 1878 and left a son Aleck (Alex) Houck and maybe even more children. We want to know if anyone knows about an orphanage in the Memphis Tennessee area where Aleck may have been placed before working on the Greer farm on the 1880 census. Any help would be appreciated.

       Zhanna121212 and Joanna Cantrell Looking for an orphanage in Philadelphia

I am certain the orphanage you are both looking for is St Vincent's at 7201 Milnor Street. I lived there 6 years. It was a harsh place to be. There is a gray stone building and wall matching your description. Although I am unsure of the date, the original building burnt to the ground. During my stay there, the nuns were very abusive and we were never given any of the toys or clothing that were donated, as we were in uniforms. Toys were simply not allowed. There were huge parties at Christmas where we were given toys and clothes, when the party was over the nuns quickly confiscated them. We never saw them again.

1956- 1961

       

I'm looking for anyone who might remember or would like to talk about their memories of this orphanage. My personal memory was that this was run on a daily basis by the Dominican nuns on the girls side, and priest on the boy's side. We were caught up in a time when punishments were quite severe and used without warning. The Catholic religion was also part of our daily regime. Every facet of our life there was the fear of God and giving up your life to him. Please contact me if this sounds remotely familiar to you. I have many stories to tell.

To All the girls from St Josephs, hope your easter was as heart lifting as mine was. One of my fondest memories was making my First Communion on Easter so many years ago when I was in 2nd grade... I remember my partner fainting and me having to lead the procession and missing my mark on the floor because I was so nervous !!! I remember the big mural on the front church wall "Suffer the little children to come unto me", I remember our fancy little white dresses and petticoat to make our dresses poof out, and our black little patent leather shoes, and purse, and new white bible, and the scapula, and not being able to eat breakfast before church. Later on in 5th or 6th grade getting to make my Confirmation. I remember not wanting to leave St. Josephs when my mother came to take me home for good. St Josephs was my home. I remember taking the bus to Shoreham every summer and sleeping in the cottages and the Sister having her own room in the cottage while we girls slept in our own beds something like 8 kids to a cottage. Going down the wooden steps and the wonderful smell of the ocean beach.. I remember going to the World's Fair and being mezmerized by "The Pieta" how white and shiny, big and oh how so sad Mary was holding the body of our Lord Jesus Christ ...

       Susan Benway. Your mom search 6/21/11

I was in the same dorm with "Beverly Benway",she was my very best friend until the nuns sent me away in 68. My name than was Michele Keller i had 7 brothers and sisters i never saw again after that also. I was sent there after my mother gave birth and did'nt want me. I was witness to so much wrong done to me and other children. I remember pulling sister carmels veil off when she was beating my 3yr. old sister. What dont i remember would be the question. I remember the "Seminarians" treating me "Special" little did i know my life would be marred forever from them and the "Janitor" who wanted me to just "Touch Him". I remember "Sister louise" beating the "piss" out of me in the eating area in front of everyone than later trying to butter me up so i would'nt tell on her. I remember "Sister Regina" telling me when my nose was bleeding that it was the bad bleeding out of me, I was 6 yrs. old. what badness? I remember "Sister Regina"pulling me out of bed at 4am and filling up the "Landing bathroom" sink and put my head under water to shut me up. Mind you now i was 4 yrs. old and crying "I want my mommy,wheres my mommy".I remember the toys.and partys that "Behr manning" put on for us at xmas and the toys we saw only that night. I remember almost dying in the infirmary with stitches that had burst from a injury earlier(I'm surprised they even took me to hosp.) but it was'nt over yet as after the stitches burst i remember waiting while "Sister Joacum" wrapped it in hot plastic for 2 weeks and finally it turned black and smelled up the infirmary. They finally took me back to hosp. only to hear i might loose my leg!! the Dr. was Nice to me and put a cast on my L leg for 11weeks. I spent those 11 weeks at "Cobb Memorial" home for Down syndrome children. I loved it there and the nuns there were so kind to me.I could write forever but my family needs me so i really spent yrs. in therapy to even begin talking about it. I have read so many letters from alot of children who,like myself have suffered irriparable damage but learned to lie our way through life lest someone find out our past and place a lable on us. I don't know how anyone let the abuse go so far for so many yrs.I thought it was how you lived and never knew how to make it stop until one July day in 1968 i was talking to other girls and saying i was gonna tell on them and they quikley threw me away to another "Foster Home" where the abuse was horrid. Albany county DSS was in charge of a great number of cases an did nothing short of killing children themselves. The memories will never go away i just learn to cope by cutting myself and running away so often. Healthy Huh! well thats what the Sisters of the presentation taught me in order not to feel the emotional hurt i compare to combat survival. Susan I hope i was at least somewhat helpful. Sincerely Michele Keller (Ingles)

They were adopted before me. I was told I had a sister, but I don't remember her. I was told that my last name was Hart or Heart. If any one knows any information about me or my brothers, please respond. I don't know much about my past, but love to find out something.

Mississippi Baptist Childrens Home Jackson, MS
1900s

       

My father and I are trying to find out any information on my grandmother who was living in this orphanage in the early 1900s. We have been searching for over 13 years since she passed away. From what we gathered from her is that her father left her in a park on a bench and a few minutes later a man and a woman came up to her and told her to come with them and they would take her to a safe place that her father wanted her to go with them. She was born in 1903 as far as we know and was taken in by a family from Simpson County, MS at the age of 10. Their names were George and Tiny Welch. When she married my Grandfather she was using this families last name. As far as she could remember was that her biological father's name was Patrick O'Kelley. We are at a stand still in our family genology and wish we could find something about her. Her Name was Florence Alberta and we dont even know if that was her real name at that time or not... Please if you have any information on where we can search for any answers please contact me via email

I Remember Mis Ruth the head counceler or Maidtrin. I remember Yevone Morales (such a sweet person), Marilyn Webb, Tina Gay, Kathy Schmitt (Whom I had many a good fight with)lol, Eileen Marco (who Is married & living in Germany now),Rosita Lopez, Anna Muriel(who one would think she gain weight)but it was only a pumple lol. The twins Claire & Carrol, Maria Medina & her sisters, Rosita Lopez,& her sisters, are just a few of so many wonderful girls residing in different division etc. I earned $5.00 a week for working in the Refectory, serving the Nuns dinner clearing 27 tables & running the dishwasher, sweeping & vaccuming every evening. I loves Father Stouter, Didn't like Sr. Edmond (the slapping machine) I use to have thoughts of tieing her up & locking her in the closet with a bible lol. Sr. Lucy was not a favorite of mine. I hold very fond memories of the "Knights Of Columbus" holding Halloween parties every year to bring us joy. Anyway if anyone can relate to any of these memories I would love to hear from you.

Dear beloved Brother and sister Love and greetings to you in His most Exalted Name of our Lord Jesus Christ I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Pastor Kumar, and I am an orphan. One pastor adopted me and grown up me and dedicated me for His service, after getting Bible Training. I have like and believe in your faith statement and I desire to work with you and with your ministry. Please affiliate our ministry with you and give your blessings to us. This is thickest forest area, where I am working as a pastor. It is a farthest place to the city. No pastor, no missionary came here to preach the word of God. Because, this is a thickest forest. No roads, no education, no medical facility. But all these people are very dangerous. All are idolaters. They did not like the Jesus. They have a fear that if they believe the Jesus, their gods and goddess may kill them. In all these circumstances, I am working in that area since 12 years. At the beginning of our service, I was faced so many troubles here people beat the pastors and Lord’s servants. Burnt the churches but still I stand for the Jesus. I was gathered some orphan and destitute children and giving education and feeding. But, I am not giving regular feeding to them. All these people are tribal. (Koyas) all the people are so poor. They have no proper clothes and food. They are all illiterates. They never cooperate with us, even though we told anything to them. These people drink the water in small ditches polluted water, due to the mosquitoes, and facing so many diseases. But here no medical facilities. They are depending upon the leaves in the forest and sacreats from the trees as their medicines. At present, I have 31 orphan children. I am giving them free education only. Please share our burden in these works. If our Lord talk with you, please provide some pens, blankets, brushes, shoes, old clothes, soaps, and also please wipe out their tears with your financial supports. Please remember our ministry and our orphan children in your daily prayers, and also remember us while your dinner and in your prayers. Daily we are all praying for you. Please send your literature to us. Iam waiting for your reply with prayers. In His Steps Pastor,Kumar INDIA

There was an old red brick building with some type of metal fence surrounding it that myself and siblings were sent to in 1963. Does anyone recall this place, name, location, anything?

St. John's Orphanage, West Seneca, New York/Erie County
1910- 1912

       

Clarence J. Guenther (birth name) B. Date 2-13-1903 Elma or Buffalo, New York 1903-1912 has been traced. CLARENCE's mother MARY or MAMIE (NEE SCHMITT) GUENTHERwas found dead in 1907 and his father JOHN C. GUENTHER moved many times in and around the Buffalo area until he remarried in 1911 to DOROTHEA (YOST) FICSHER and settled in West Seneca area until 1939 and took his life. CLARENCE also had three brothers. GEORGE MARTIN GUENTHER(my grandfather) was also in the St. John's Orphanage from 1910-1912 (have complete life history). EDWIN GUENTHER(have mostly complete history of) and FREDERICK GUENTHER (have complete history) CLARENCE was the youngest of the 4 boys and as I suspect kind of lost in the shuffle. We have only a a handful of possiblities for Clarence. He might have been taken to Canada with his mother's side of the SCHMITT family. passed away. or was put back in another orphanage and then adopted out and name changed. There is no CLARENCE J. GUENTHER found on census, draft records, marriage records, or deather records after 1912. Thinking the Orphan Train, but no real direction!

St.Joseph Orphanage, Tucson, Arizona
1913 (?) -1924

       

I am trying desperately to find out what happened to my aunt.Her name was Gertrude Mae Hendricks. She was born in Joplin, Missouri in 1904 to Tilton Clayton Hendricks and Emma Nettie Dodson. She had two brothers, Leonard Sidney( my father) and Homer Hendricks. The family arrived in Glob, AZ around 1909. Tilton was a city attorney in partnership with Walter Moore. Gertrude lost her mother in 1910 from a miscarriage hemmhorage. Her father remarried Mary Lord in 1913. In 1915 Tilton died. My father and his brother left Globe and traveled to family in Missouri and Illinois. So far we've learned she attended St.Joseph Academy for a few years until 1918. Whether she was sent to the school for education and then when her father died was placed in the orphanage we don't know. Or she could have been sent to the orphanage first. Grasping for any leads at the time. Poor little Gertrude. Lost her mom and then her dad. Left alone until she died in 1963.

Bethany Children's Home, 918 Highland St., Hammond, Indiana
1940- 1950

       

My mother, Alice Corine Mayes,and her sister, Marie Mayes, were placed in the Bethany Children's Home in Hammond, Indiana in the early 1940's. We don't know if her parent gave them up willingly or if possibly the county took them away from her parents and placed them in Bethany Children's Home. I found Mom's family in the 1940 Illinois Federal Census: The last name was spelt MAY, not MAYES. 10718 S Torrance, Chicago City, Illinois William May: 47 years, Born in Georgia between 1893-1898. Anna May: 33 years, born born about 1907 in Kentucky Louise May: 9 years, born about 1931 in Illinois William May: 9 years, born about 1931 in Illinois Ruth May: 8 years, born about 1932 in Illinois Marie May: 6 years, born about 1933 in Illinois Alice May: 5 years, born Oct 6, 1934 in Illinois Walter May: 4 years, born about 1936 in Illinois Catherine May: 1 year, born about 1939 in Illinois I's assuming they were place in Bethany Children's Home shortly after April 1, 1940. My mother can't remember how many of her siblings lived at Bethany Children's Home. Alice's birth certificate states her father as William Mayes and mother as Anna Wall. The records I have found for her father states his name as William Earnest May, son of William David May and Sarah Joanna Gracen. I am not completely certain that this is her father. The things that make me believe it is correct is that my mother always said her father's name was Ernest, and it shows her mother as Anna Corine Smith. With the same middle name of Corine it makes me believe it could be correct. The only thing that concerns me is Anna's last name of Smith. Mom's birth certificate state Anna's maiden name as Wall. I found this information in an un-sourced family tree published on Acestry.com. At the age of 16, Alice was a nanny for a family in Crown Point, Indiana and graduated from Crown Point High School in 1952. She married William Aciel VanNurden in 1952 and they made their home in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. Alice and her sister Marie stayed in contact for many years. Marie and her husband Gene lived in Merrill, Wisc. They have not talked in about 20 years. Mom cannot remember Marie's married name. She believes it starts with "Gre" and ends in "ski"... Gre*****ski. She did not keep in contact with the rest of her family. I remember my father telling me that her mother, Anna, died in the 1980's in Kentucky. I would love to be able to find Marie so that I can get these two sisters together again. We would also like to find the rest of her siblings. Alice is now 78 years old and we don't know if any of her siblings are still living. I would like to find the records for Alice while she was at Bethany Children's Home in Hammond, Indiana. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me at svannurden@comcast.net . Thank you in advance. Susan Corine VanNurden

Unknown orphanage name, Louisville, Jefferson, KY
1921-1926

       

My Mother & her sister, Mary Elizabeth Hally & Ruby Ann Hally, were placed in a Louisville orphanage when Ruby was an infant. Supposedly their Mother died in childbirth. The orphanage burned down & they were moved to an orphanage in IN, possibly the Knightstown Soldiers & Sailors Home in Henry Co., IN. The dates of birth are 2/02/1921 & 4/23/1923, respectively. The birth parents are Erastus Hally & Elorzia Holly. I can find no record of the parents anywhere. Both girls were fostered to IN residents, but never legally adopted, even though they took new names of the respective foster parents. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for Dave Clark(e),jr., He was adopted about 1939, Birth mothers name Opal Lee Russell, father Dave Clark(e), Opal was married before to Tobe Looney and had 3 children Dale, Ernest, and Ermine. Opal was very ill and as the story goes her parents adopted Dave out, but no one ever heard from his father either.

I do have lots of family info. for Dave or his children if they would like to know it. She wants him to know he was loved, but the grandparents were too old to care for him.

St. Joseph's Hall for Girls, Willoughby Avenue, Brooklyn, New York
1964 - 1967

       

Hello. My name is Magda Alvarado, my birth name, the name used while I was in St. Joseph's Hall for Girls, from October 1964 to October 1967. For some reason, today I got a notion to go exploring on the web, looking for information about St. Joseph's. It started with doing a Google map search of Willoughby Avenue, where I went cyber walking. Using St. John the Baptist Parochial School as a guide, I was able to see that apartment buildings now occupy the space where St. Joseph had stood. I went walking through the neighborhood, hoping to see some familiar landmarks, remembering the walks to Woolworth's on Saturdays with one of the volunteer counselors. I went through all of the postings on this web, starting in 2005. It took all day and I sent out a bunch of emails in response to the messages I came across. I hope to hear from at least one, if not all, the girls of St. Joe's. Sister Marguerite Delores was my Group Mother during the entire time I was at St. Joseph's. I adored her. (Really!) I am not as keen on remembering many names, but here are the ones that readily come to mind: Kathy Gibson, Debbie Gibson, Ginny Gibson, Gloria Perez, Rosemary Perez, Evelyn Perez, Regina Lutz, Christina Lutz, Maritza Morales. I was a loner, a bookworm. I liked to hang out in the library, reading all the saint books. In 1965, my younger sisters (Mildred and Aurea) were admitted and assigned to Sister Richard, up on the third floor, opposite the infirmary. My beautiful baby brother, Oscar (aka Skipper), was the first boy allowed admittance, sometime after Easter, in 1965. He was four years old. My heart is filled with much fondness when I remember the loving care extended to me. I hope to hear from someone soon . . .

I am Leah A. Wright, Lea Rachael Coutlee at birth. My mother was Jennie Harper and married to Norman Coutlee. I recently found out that I have a brother in Washington State that my older brother, Norman Coutlee Jr., has stated that he visits. I just found my family in Canada. There is a Family Reunion for my mother's side of the family on 7/6/13. I would like this unknown brother and a sister that were both adopted out approximately 1951 to 1953 or 1954. My mother had a girl and I was able to see her and hold her if only for a brief moment. Later my foster mother stated that the baby was picked up the next day and adopted out. She had another baby and it was adopted out also. My mother was a Native American and from what I can understand she was mentally ill and there was no help for her condition, mainly because she was native american. I am in the process of obtaining her death certificate and then I can obtain her birth certificate. There is no record it seems anywhere of her. If there is anyone out there that can help me or if either of these siblings can come foreward I would be so happy. You need meet the great family I met in 2011. You both are 2 of 14 children born to this family. 7 from Jennie Harper Coutlee and 7 from Margaret Coutlee, my father's name was Norman Ranger Coutlee. There is a great family history and we have very famous grand fathers and great grand parents. Thank you for responding. Leah A. Wright, 5/3/13.

My name is Danielle Bailey my mom is deceased I was a ward of the state moved around from foster home to group homes to foster homes. My mom maiden name is Constance Marie Hooker . Her D.O.B is August 6 not sure of the year. But I'm searching for my older sister who was given up for adoption. All I know about her is she is bi-racial( mixed w/white and Spanish ) she is 11 yrs older than me and her birth name was Rosie not sure of the last name. Our mom is from Sacramento California I was t sure if I wanted to search for her because she may not want to know me but if I so t try I will never know I'm not sure if she was adopted there or here in Baltimore ,Maryland where our mom thee traveled to in Hope's to find my sister but could not find her because of the laws concerning adoption if she see this I just want her to know mommy loves her and so do I and she didn't want you to go up for adoption she was under age and when our racist grandmother (who is deceased) found out she was pregnant and dating a man of color so she made our mom give her up for adoption her dad wasn't in the picture. Our mom was out and her dad puts some (Spanish Fly) which is a date rape drug my sister name is Rosie her last name maybe hooker as my moms but I truly don't know I'm her only sibiling she is Spanish and white she would be 48 because she is 11 years older than me maybe her.

Her maiden name at that time was Edith Adams. My mom's dad committed suicide (or was murdered) when she was 4-5 years old, back in the roaring 20's ... she ended up in the german orphange in anacostia virginia ... back in the 1920's .... along with her sister Levena, and her younger brother Robert. here is a link to the Historical Society Article about the Orphanage with pictures … if you see these pictures you will see the tower. Mom took us to see the Orphanage One time when we were very small kids I still remember that day. The main thing a kid noticed was that tower, and mom said her bedroom with some other kids … was in the top of the tower. http://greatergreaterwashington.org/post/13134/lost-washington-good-hope- roads-german-orphanage/ these short videos I shot that last day I saw her Nov 22, 2012, she was telling some of the old stories, in this one she talks about the orphanage … She mentions the Hoffman’s that ran the orphanage, it could have been Mom’s memory she may have meant Henry and Elizabeth Harrold. Mom’s name was Edith, but with their thick german accents they pronounced her name …. “Editt” https://plus.google.com/photos/107987644211264821464/albums/5814018513539 722193/5888228398197932802?partnerid=gplp0&pid=5888228398197932802&am p;oid=107987644211264821464 this is part two of her story about the orphange … https://plus.google.com/photos/107987644211264821464/albums/5814018513539 722193/5888244249978226386?partnerid=gplp0&pid=5888244249978226386&am p;oid=107987644211264821464

St peters home for children--- - Memphis,Tn
11 yrs

       

I was placed in st peters the first time when i was only 13 months old and very sick,. This was 1968 along w/ all my siblings there was 7 of us. I have started a childhood journey searching of why i have no memories of childhood. I have checkerboard memories and they don't make sense to me. When i started requesting records from the orphanage and state thats where im hitting brick walls. The records i did retrieve i come to learn we children were placed here way before i was born. One memory that keeps me up at night is a nun is leading about 6 of us girls single file line to the priest house which was next door on same grounds as orphanage. It was late at night cause nun got me out of bed to go meet the priest. I see low dimmed lights and i know i dont i dont want to be here. The nun while walking us over instructs us girls we are not to speak until the father speaks to us. We were to be seen not heard. No memory after this. I have apparently blocked something out. What? I don't know. This is just one of the strange memory i hold. I'm looking for anyone that was in st peters home for children years 1968 - 1977. My family name is Golden and like i stated earlier there were 7 of us. My den mothers name at time was tommie i remembered this cause i always thought how strange a woman to have a man's name. The nuns name was sister mary margaret. Please any info that can be given about this place would greatly be appreciated. I also remember the mans name that was over the little boys dept. Sid. Got not good memories of him. He was engaged at one time to a lady who worked there also her name was debbie. Thank you for taking the time to read..
