Dear Paul,

Thank you for reading the blog and reaching out. Thank you for the information about your grandmother. We are interested in finding out more about residents of the Home. If you would like to leave her name or have any more information about her time as a "matron" at the Home, email us at ylaxton[@]srmml.org

Thank you,
Ymelda Rivera Laxton, Assistant Curator

My grandmother was there, according to the 1920 census where it lists many pages of students at the time. Additionally, my grandmother's mother is listed as a resident, employed by Oddfellows as a "matron."

Dear Donald,

Thank you for reading the blog. We unfortunately do not have any information about children who once lived at the orphanage. You could reach out to the Odd Fellows Grand Lodge of Missouri [http://miooof.com/] to find out if they have any available information about children who lived at the home.
