Pretty sure my mom and 3 siblings were there in the 1930's. Both parents died in separate auto accidents within about a year. My uncles were fostered out to a carpenter (name?) my aunt to a family named Breen (she was abused), and my mom left at 18. She said things about scrubbing floors as punishment, and that the nuns were strict. Elizabeth, Anton, Joseph, Rozella Zeleznik. I'd like to know more. Plenty of relatives in Joliet and Plainfield, but I didn't spend much time there and did not learn Slovene.
