NY INSTITUTION FOR THE INSTRUCTION OF THE DEAF AND DUMB

Posting this in the hopes that it may prove helpful to someone else.

My great-grandparents were both deaf due to childhood illnesses, and they both lived in Paterson, NJ. They attended the New York Institution for the Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb. One being admitted in 1877 and the other in 1880. I was able to obtain copies of their admission papers from the Westchester County Historical Society.

Their website is:

At some point, my great-grandmother was associated with the deaf school in Trenton, NJ as I have a picture of her taken in 1888 sitting on the stairs of the building.

Also, I found a deaf newspaper entitled, "The Silent Worker". In one issue was an article about their wedding in 1895. PRICELESS!!!!
