Surnames: St. Frances Orphanage, Woonsocket R.I
Can either of you tell me where St. Francis's records are? My grandmother was sent away as a teen-ager for awhile. My aunt doesn't know why, she was younger. We all know that pregnant catholic girls sent away for awhile usually went to a convent to have a baby. My grandmother lived all her life in Woonsocket. I know the orphanage you are talking about. I was planning on going there when I read the horror stories. My heart breaks for both your ancestors. It so hard to believe those horrors were happening to these poor children, behind the doors of this orphanage, as people drove by. I had an ancestor grow up in an orphange in France, it makes me wonder if she too survived the horror of the nuns. Next question do either of you know what convent a girl would have been sent to in Woonsocket in the early 30's. Would it have been Mount St. Calire or was that just a school for girls? Thank you for any help. Cherylann
