I have seen a 1920 Census for Webster Place Orphanage
and am looking for information on Dwight Standish age 11 at the time. I believe he is my grandfather and I have been unable to find any other information about Webster Place.
This is all I know. I hope that Daniel Webster Orphanage is the Webster Place Orphanage, Merrimack County.

Are there records available to see as to why my grandfather was there and not with his parents?

Thanks.

Hi Lisa,
I don`t know if there are records or not I was there about 1946and again in thje fifties,My mother use to get real sick when she was pregnant and we would have to go ther until she had the baby, then n 1953 she got into a terrible car acident and we were put back there until she got better. We were there about a year at that time .
It was not a school for bad children but one for needy children
It is no longer a orphanage it was a place where the nuns lived the last time I was by therePerhaps you could check with them and find out where the records are kept. Maybe the town of Franklin.
There were many reasons why kids were put there.
I am searching as I would like to find some one that was there at the time I was there.
Hope that
you will find what you are looking for .
If I come accross it I will let you know. Mary


P.S try the countycourt house.

Thanks
