Orphan & Orphanage Records
St. Mary's German Orphan Asylum, BuffaloThis asylum was established in 1852, and incorporated under the general law August 6th, 1856. The building, in the eastern part of the city, erected in 1848, is a three-story brick edifice, conveniently arranged, and will accommodate thirty-five inmates.
The institution is in charge of the Roman Catholic order of the Sisters de Notre Dame. It is supported by private gifts, collections in churches, and aid from the city and State. The property is valued at $6,600, and its indebtedness is $3,907.18. The receipts the past year were $1,620.85, and the expenditures amounted to $1,285.21.
Children of both sexes are admitted to the asylum. They are received at any age, from infancy to ten years, and discharged by adoption into families, or apprenticed to farmers or tradesmen. The number admitted to the institution since its opening is two hundred and seventy-four. Twenty-seven were supported the past year, and nine were placed in temporary homes, in good families.
The inspection was made in July, 1868, and again in July, 1869. The institution was in good condition, and it seems to be properly managed.
