Puzzle:Joseph Godwin Orphanage to Fredireck Crockenberg Cherry Ridge 1911

According to the records of St. Patrick's Orphanage in Scranton a Joseph Godwin was sent to Fredireck Crockenberg in 1911. The record is sketchy and workers cannot decipher whether it is "Clenn" or "Clem" [I do not know what it would refer to.] A Rev. Dr. Balta is listed in the notes as well. I noted the Crockenberg family in the 1910 Census. Joseph Godwin was one of five children scattered about the Scranton Diocese and an uncle of mine. We have been unable to locate him or his brother John Godwin. Oral family history has referred to a German family connection. Patrick Godwin, a brother of his (and my father) was found in Warren Township, Bradford County 1920 Census, as a "homeboy" in the Boland family on Irish Hill. My family came from Ireland. A John Rutledge of Scranton picked him up and when I checked the 1910 Census I saw a Gusa Crockenburgh was a sister-in-law living withhis family.
