I'm looking for any Asylum photos of children who resided in Healey Asylum in Lewiston, Maine during 1945-1950. Looking for photos of my husband (William Charles Guay) & his brother (Paul Guay).

I don't have any pictures, but my father and his brother were there in that time frame. I'm trying to get some information on this subject. There names are Robert and Donald Landry from Madison Maine.

Hi ... Thanks for responding. Unfortunately, my husband doesn't remember any of the other children's names. I did write to the Nuns and received a letter back from them but they don't have any records. However, I was able to get some photos of the building itself which is now being used as a home for the elderly, I think. I'd be glad to send you the photos I have but would need your email address. Let me know.

Not sure yet, I believe an uncle of mine, was there during those years. His wife's name is Gert Mynahan in Lewiston...phone # 783-8888, and though she has dementia, I believe, her daughter lives with her and perhaps could give you so information? Is this the location also known as, The Farm? If so, I believe Bernard Mynahan, my uncle, may have been there at the same time.

I also failed to mention, that my uncle's nickname, was Bunny, perhaps they remember this? However, he did pass away several years ago now.

My dad was there from 1944 to 1952. If anyone has any information. We would forever be in debt to you. This is something very important for our family.

I am told that Mark Mccomas, The Economic Developer at the City of Lewiston is an expert on what is now called the Intown Manor. I do not expect much luck as I contacted him in August 2010 and he was supposed to get back to me. He did not, but try and tell him I sent you.
