I have found very limited information on this 'home'. Would you mind sharing some of your memories of the home?
My email address is My husband was in the home from approx 1960 through 1965. How long were you there? We have been in contact with someone who hopefully find some of my husband's records and hopefully they will be willing to share that information. We are trying to figure out why he was "placed" in the home at a tender age of four. He has a sister who went with him but do know she was adopted out. His parents were married but we don't know if the were divorced. We have found his paternal family but no luck with the maternal family. He was raised as a foster child and never knew his blood family.
I am slowly connecting with folks who were there but have not connected with anyone who was there at the same time period as my husband. Thanks for your time.
