In Reply to: Scranton Orphanage by TINA ELLIS of 918

My mother lives in the Scranton area and I passed on your message in a recent email exchange with her. This is her reply:

When I read the request about an orphanage in Scranton from the 1920's, it immediately came to me that it must be St. Patrick's Orphanage. I called Bishop' Timlin's office in the Scranton diocese and the girl asked him, and he must have told her it was St. Patrick's. She didn't have an address because it has been out of there for years. Hope this is able to help the person. It was located over in West Scranton.
