Subject: [KYWASHIN-L] What is the Loretto Institute? / Calvery Female Institute
Date: Fri, 27 Aug 1999 18:33:04 -0700


While browsing the 1850 Marion Co Ky Census I found reference, and many
people listed for, the two following places.
I was wondering if anyone knew what he "Loretto Institute" was appearing
on the 1850 Marion Co Census. Also the Calvary Female Institute "or "
Female Academy" . Were these two facilities Insane Asylums? I'm
tending to think they are, as the ages range from 90 to one year. Does
anyone know for sure?

Thanks for the help!
