Inmates, St. Vincent's Orphan Asylum, 1880


St. Vincent's Orphan Asylum was founded in 1863 by the Sisters of Charity, whose academy, St. Mary's, and convent was located on Kickapoo Street in Leavenworth. Most of the children listed below are not orphans (i.e., without any parents), but were left in the care of the Sisters because the widow/widower parent was unable to care for the child.
