1930'S Group Home/Orphanage in Prescott
Posted by: Sandy Iacono (ID *****5633) Date: March 27, 2002 at 07:27:23
  of 200

My father and his brothers were orphaned when both their parents died. They were sent from Hazard, KY to Prescott, AZ. They lived in a group home/orphanage for some time, then enlisted into the Army. My father was sent to Father Flanagan's Boys Town/Home. Their names are Thomas Jackson Caldwell (my father), Robert Lee Caldwell (the oldest) Paul Jones Caldwell. Robert went onto to College after the war in Phoenix, and Paul relocated to Yuma and became a high school teacher. My father broke horses on a couple of ranches, worked in the Grand Canyon, went on a rodeo circuit, he was married to my mother, Trudy. I would like to know if anyone has information about group homes or orphanges in Prescott or surrounding areas.
THANKS!!!!
