Hi There: I have been searching, for many years for my Great Grandmother. Her name was Nellie Smith Propst Carson. We were able to locate her on a roster, as an inmate at "Girls Industrial School, Geneva, Nebraska, 1900. There is also another name that comes up, Mabel Donovan, who was listed as "laundry" on the same roster. Come to find out, Mabel married a Propst, who were my Grandmother's foster parents that adopted her. It seems she was sent to, Mother Jewels, then the Girls Industrial School, then to a place called Christian Home, Council Bluffs, IA. If anybody has any information, at all, I would dearly love to hear from you.
