Rita McGinn
Can anyone tell me about Rita M. McGinn who was a resident of the Rome State School from about 1934.
We have very little information about her. She was my Great Aunt, my father's sister. We never learned she
existed until after she died. If you can help by recalling anything about Rita, my family would be so
appreciative. Thank you.

My mom and dad both were sent away to this dreaded place in the 1940's There wasn't anything wrong with either one of them. Their crime? Being deaf and parents not being able to deal with it. Sure to this unfortunate situation my parents both were robbed and so weren't my siblings andI. We have survived beatings,verbal abuse, and some other abnormalities. As a child I blamed my mother for her psychotic behavior it wasn't until adulthood and therapy that I could understand why my mother wasn't normal and it's because HER childhood was robbed as well and she didn't know any better. How come there were no civil law suits ever filled. Would love to hear if any other folks had a very dysfunctional upbringing. Not to mention I feel my parents were robbed of education as well. It shows in their speech and their writing.

My great uncle Fred Keller d.o.b July 3,1897 went to Rome sometime between the 1910 census and the draft in 1917. He is listed on his draft card already living at Rome and listed as a moron. Cannot find any other information about him and where he would have went when the asylum turned into a school......

My great Uncle was sent there sometime between 1910 when he was in the census with his family and 1917 on his draft card. He was listed at Rome state custodial asylum. Havent seen his name on the cemetery list . If he remained there where would he have gone when it turned into a school or when it closed? And where would reecords of this be?


Hello, I've combined your two separate posts into one for consistency's sake and also per our forum rules.

While I'm not much of a genealogist and there maybe someone who could point you better, I know I can answer a few things. The "into school" thing was mainly the institution changing names but not purposes. So he most likely was still there when the name changed.

My other guess would be that he could have spent the rest of his life there. The reason he might have not shown on the Rome State School cemetery list could be that either, he left the institution for an adult home and passed away there or he passed away at the institution and his/your family claimed his body for burial at their own preferred cemetery.

While we have no institution records ourselves, I believe the Rome Historical Society [1] has more genealogical information on the institution.
