I have just recently found out that my grandmother was at the Exeter Home, later known as The Ladd School, somewhere between 1930 until just before 1940. I have heard and read some horrible things about this school. I read somewhere that their records are still sitting in the basement of this place? Does anyone know if this is true? If they are not, and I do hope they aren't, does anyone know where I can obtain any records? My grandmother was one of 10 (out of 17) children to be placed in an orphanage in 1925 and then be shuffled around Rhode Island for the next 15 years.
I have found most of my grandmothers siblings, but am desperate to find them all, but need to start at one place.
If anyone can give me information regarding Exeter Home, please contact me.
