: : My grandmother was also in a orphanage around 1880 in or near San Francisco, but I can't locate a name for the institution. Can you help?
Do you have any other information? Such as if she was Catholic. Most of the orphanages were run by religious entities. You can do a search of local city directories to get a good idea of which orphanages existed.
If you can locate her in the 1880 census, you may be able to narrow down the possibilities.
Hope this helps,
