Surnames: PORTER, HEATH
On page 68 of the 1850 census for Worthington, Franklin, OH (image 12 on Ancestry) there is a man named Shiley Porter who is the superintendent of some kind of institution for girls. I'm interested in Hannah Heath, who is listed later on the same page.

Does anyone know what this institution was? I can't make out the name at all.

Thanks!
