Connecticut's Civil War: Orphans' Home Project

   I thought the following (taken from a Rootsweb message board post) might be of interest to a few of you:

The Mansfield Historical Society is working on an exhibit on the Civil War Orphans' Home in Mansfield, Connecticut. If you have family stories or photos of individuals that lived or worked at the Orphans' Home, we would like to hear from you. Photographs of superintendents Edwin Whitney and John B. Carpenter are also being sought. Both previously worked at the Providence Reform School before serving as superintendent of the Orphan Home. Replies may be sent directly to Ann Galonska: mansfield.historical@snet.net or to this message board.

   I'm looking forward to hearing more about the exhibit!
