Rome State School 1940s
my uncle was sent there in the late 1930s. He is listed on the census along with many other ( some children). He had cerebral palsy, but from what I understand my grandmother, a trained nurse, could no longer take care of him and her other 7 children. My mother, age 82, still remembers my grandmother sobbing when they put Arthur on the bus. He died in 1948 at the State School.

1940s Rome State School working children
The census lists the # of hours each child worked. So apparently this was standard practice.

Rome State School
My grandmother was in the Rome State School, I don't know the year, but I know it anytime from the time she was born in 1926 to 1966 when my father was born. I know she ran away once, but I am looking for any information that I can get. Her name is Eunice Eaton, but she may have gone by Eunice Hill, her maiden name, or Eunice Moon. If anyone has any kind of information please email me at courtneyboyd0123@gmail.com

Leland Olds
Hi all,
I just found this list. I found my great uncle, Leland Olds, listed on the 1930 and 1940 census as having lived in the "Rome State School" - I have no idea why nor does anyone in my family. I've tried to find records but HIPA laws still protect his privacy. I can't find out why he was placed there or when he died.
Does anyone know how to access any of this information? I'd appreciate any help.
Thank you
Cindy G

Do any former patients or employees on here remember a Leland Olds?? He was listed as an 'inmate' on the 1930 and 1940 census...

I would appreciate any information.

My aunt, whom I have never met, died at the Rome State School in 1953. I think she was 13. Her name was Carol Jean Eckerlin. I have very little information about her. Her parents and her brother, my father, have all passed. How do I find any information about her.

I Potsdam and sent back to the St. Lawrence home. released Jan 1993. She married at the hospital so I believe she was released to her husband. But on this list there are listing stating removed to Rome School. My question is does anyone know what the St. Lawrence county home was in the 1930's?

Rome State School Students
I am not sure of my history my mother gave me up to the Vanderheyden Hall When I was 6 months old. I then was sent to the Rome State School til I was of age to work and was sent to the Eastern Star to work. All of the these stories are so real to me. After I left the Eastern star at around the age of 18 to visit home and never went back. I ran away and got married so that they couldnt bring me back if they found me. My name was Dorothy Godso at that time and I am trying to find some of the other people I went to school with. Emily Walters (i believe) is one of the friends i went to school there with she had a twin brother. Kate Whiten is another girl that I remember. Ann Oliver, Nick Santelo, Russel Reynolds, Richard Rowe, and another girl named Jane, silvia louts (all names may be mispelled) mary smith, edna, and many more. If you can help me finding any of these people or anyone who worked or went to the school in my time range please email me mjm4231980@gmail.com I am 72 years old and would love for my family to meet my past friends.
