This information may help someone who is researching orphans in the Pittsburgh, PA area. I came upon this passage on a website pertaining to a Catholic high school which is now located near Carnegie: "In 1958, His Excellency, the Most Reverend John F. Dearden, Bishop of Pittsburgh, announced that a high school intended to serve the Chartiers Valley was to be erected on the diocesan property adjacent to St. Paul’s Orphanage, now St. Paul’s Seminary. Ground was broken for Bishop Canevin High School on this site on August 17, 1958."

Hi Janet,

I do look-ups for people from my mother's two yearbooks, Crafton H.S., 1940 and 1941. I was trying to determine when the Catholic H.S. opened up in that area so I went on the web and looked up Canevin H.S. That's when I saw the reference to the orphanage. Here's the URL:

Blessings,
Carol
