                                Children Placed in Private Homes: 1897

 

 

From 1897 Proceedings of Board of Supervisors of Saratoga County:  Report of Superintendent of the Poor

 

"Last year the number of children in ...institutions was 192.  The reduction [in the number of children supported by Saratoga County  in orphanage institutions] has been accomplished by having 34 children from the various institutions, where we have been charged  $1.50 per week, and through the agency of Rev. W. J. Maybee, have found

homes where they will be properly cared for and cease to  be a burden upon the poublic, and through family influences and more favorable surroundings, grow up to useful lives. The following is a list of the children thus far provided for, with age, date of transfer and present location."

       Dated November 8, 1897                                                              C. W. Spaulding
