Hi Cathy! Glad to hear from you! I was doing a search for Baumeisters in the York area when I saw a Susan E. Baumeister listed for Springettsbury Twp. in the 1940 census (thought she may be a cousin to my gr.grandfather). When I clicked on her link, that's when I discovered she was living in the York County Home. She was about 62 years old and most of the people did seem to be in their 60s and older. There were some people who were in their 50s, 40s and even 1 or 2 in their 30s, though. I had never heard of it until I stumbled across it on this census. With such a wide spread of ages for those who lived there, I'm just not sure what kind of institution it was.
I hope you've been doing well. I'm going to try to send a private e-mail to you in the next few days.
