In the 1880 census I believe I have found my grandmother living with several other young girls. At the time she was about 11 or so and I notice that the girls in the age range have the notation "at school" I also happen to note a Mother Superior, which would indicate that it might be a Catholic school or orphanage.

My Aunt alway spoke of a woman, named Healy who influenced her to become a teacher. Catherine Healy is who she is listed as living with. Can anyone shed some light on where this might have been and if any records might still exist.
