My father was in the same orphanage (St. Joseph)on 18th St. I have been searching since 1980 for any information re: his history or real birth date. My dad was Frank Rydel. He had nothing nice to say about the orphanage. They also sent him out to work on a farm. My dad says that he was their slave. He finally ran away. My dear father is now deceased, but I am still working to find out why & when he was placed in the orphanage. They also gave me a false birth date for him & I recently found him in the 1920 census which says he was 7 yrs old at that time.
