Surnames: MEEHAN --ST JOSPEH ORPHANGE IN WASHINGTON GA
Several of my great great uncles stayed there and were listed in the 1860 census, but their surnames were spelled MEAHAN instead of MEEHAN. One of them learned a printing trade there and eventually worked for the Augusta Chronicle.
I do not know the circumstances surrounding the uncle's stay at the orphanage, but would sure like to know more. Eventually their mother got the boys out and moved to Augusta, GA. I have found no record of their father MICHAEL J MEEHAN's death, butbelieve he may have been taken to a convalescent home nearby.
Is there any way I too can obtain a copy of the booklet?
