dear mike, i am trying to find my grandmothers mother and sisters. they were put in a "home" when their parents could no longer care for them. im not sure why as i cant seem to find them in any records. the name was Perry. 4 girls and possibly one boy. i heard stories that the nuns would take my great aunt Christina into the basement and beat her with rubber whip of some kind until one day when her sister Eva ran down there and got the switch away from the nun and began to hit her (the nun) with it. they ran away and left for California. My great grandmother, Lena, was born in 1900 and her sister Mary was born in 1906. as far as Eva and Christina im not sure. they may have had a brother "Tommy" . i was told that when my g. great grandmother had a baby at the "home" the "people" came to take it from her and they fought over him and he died. sad stories, i dont know if ill ever find them or what "home" they were in, but they and you overcame great struggles to make it, these poor little angels....
