About Lydia Wexler

March 13, 2010 - Found a 1910 census record indicating Lydia was then living at the Newington Home for Incurables in Newington, CT. Upon further research, this home was found to be for crippled/disabled children who were wards of the state. Commitment papers in hand. Lydia's death record came from the SS death index; will attempt to locate any other records/gravesite soonest. SS death record lists that Lydia was single/never married; that she was a practical nurse; her last address was 151 Hillside Ave., Hartford, CT; her state file#: 03768 (uncertain of the source of this number or what documents it points to) Here's the main entry:

Probably due to her parent's divorce and her mother's inability to care for her as a single woman, Lydia was forced to be committed to the Home for the Incurables in Newington, CT. I later found that Lydia died under her maiden name, indicating she likely never married nor had children.
