Maybe the Childrens Home, Cromwell, CT Years ago it was a Swedish Orphanage. It still exists but is how a treatment center for troubled children. I lived there for a few years. I remember a girl a few years older than I who was named Betty Nelson. They probably still have information.

My father was in the orphanage in 1915 with his brother and sister after their mother(Filomena colangelo Facciuto) died , but the children were out before 1920. They are on the census as adopted daughter and son of Mary Fahey but thank God i think in those days they did not change their names . Anthony facciuto, my dad and his sister Rosa Facciuto , their brother was an inmate at stamford children's home Stamford, CT. When their mother died Biaggio, Billy who later became William was 5, tony was 4 and Rosa was 2.
Your information you are looking for may be on the census if they were taken in by a family. There is a phone number you can call in CT. to see if your relative was listed. U also can ask for a census look-up in new haven county . I can try to help u if need be betty Facciuto mclaughlin, MI
