Hi, I am looking for information about a street that once existed or still exist in Staten Is. It is call Loretta St, or Ave. My mother has just died, and she I found out was born in a home at Loretta St. Her mother was raised by Catholic Nuns in a convent in the 1890. I am not sure if the convent was on Staten Is or in New York City. The mothers name was before entering the convent Daisy Wright or Yates. The sisters changed her name to Agnes Wright. She had an older sister that was put into the convent as well.
I have no information about the sister. The grandfather was a Tug Boat Captain, the before being put in the convent the lived on the boat. Agnes married a Garrigan and then an O'Donnell, this is when my mother was born. A long note to a longer story. Does anyone know where I can go to for help? My search on the web has come to no avail so far. Thank you, Eliza
