I doubt I can help but what was Vincenzo's last name? Was he at the orphanage. My entire family is from Garfield.
My Dad was at the same orphanage. I've been trying to find info about it for a long time starting with a name. My Dad won't talk about it, he was born 1926 and was there from about 1931-1938. If you could ask your grandmother about the conditions there etc, I'd greatly appreciate it. My uncle, made a comment one day I'll never forget "God only knows what they did to him in there"
