  2. My grandmother was placed in this orphanage after her mother died in 1956. She never really talked about it much apart from that it was a horrible place. She would have been 10 when she was placed there. I’m trying to find any information on her stay there and photos if any. Her name was Maureen Luscine Mannion. But her last name could have been changed while in there.
