Hello, how kind of you to assist so many with questions about orphanages in Rhode Island! My husband's grandmother Sophranie DeRosier was listed in 1900 Burrillville Census living back with her parents and siblings (Father Antoine)listed under maiden name Robideau (doux...). Census lists her as widowed with two living children. Everyone has passed who has better knowledge, but we do know they were in an orphanage together, my husband's father Harry DeRosier born 1899 and his sister (name unk.) born sometime between 1900 Census and 1910 Census. Where should I start to get orphanage information (did they keep names?)
Thank you so very much!
