I am looking for family members of children and teachers that lived at the Mother's Jewels Home in Lincoln Nebraska in the early 1900's. I have pictures and letters written to my grandmother, and thought that family members would appreciate having things in their family members handwriting. Please contact me.

Do you have any letters from any of the Mumey children who were there--Solomon, Sarah (Sadie) & Michael? Sol & Sadie were twins & were adopted to the Wineteers and Michael became Leroy Gordon Merrill. They were there in the very early 1900s since I believe that they were adopted out by 1910.

Please contact me directly if you have anything related to this family.

Many Thanks,
Mary Jo Young

I'm replying to your query on the OLDS board. Two of the OLDS children (at least?) were here at the orphanage: "Myriel" (Muriel) and Levi.

I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Virginia Treacy
