My father John Boyer ad his brother James was at St Agatha's Home for Children in Clarkstown,Rockland Co, NY in 1920. I am looking for records pertinent to his life.

Feel free to email me with any information you can give me.

With great appreciation, Florence Candy Boyer

I am so very proud to have worked and minister with God's outstanding people who many know as St Agatha's Children Home between 1978 and 1980.

Hello All-

Family history mentions Nanuet as a possible residence for me from 1933 to 1939. I am the seventh of nine children born to Robert and Adele Smith. The situation that possibly caused my temporary residence was disfunctional or immaturity. The only information I can tell is that Nanuet has been mentioned been mentioned a few times over the years of my youth. Any help would be gratefully received.

St. Agatha Home Reunion 2017

Hello again… Alumni.

A year has past and we are close to our annual reunion event at Rockland Lake State Park in Valley Cottage, New York. This year on Saturday June 3, 2017 I will again wake up really early and head over to our spot outside the fence on the North West corner of the South swimming pool at Rockland Lake State Park and put something on as many tables as I can, to save them for our alumni gathering (First come first served).

This event is so special in so many ways; ageing makes clear for so many of us how lucky we all were to have had the opportunity to be placed at St. Agatha Home for Children. looking back now you can see clearly the special care we received from all the staff, sisters, (nuns) counselors, and lay people who grew in their own knowledge caring for us all. We were given a unique opportunity to develop a second family, we now call “HomeKids”. This very special shared experience that is still very difficult to, explain even to our loved ones today.

So much happens in our lives to all of us, changing us from one year to the next. Through these annual re-unions, we catch up with each other’s changes. We create opportunity to rehash what we know to be special in our lives due to our common past.

I noticed over the last few reunions that more than one generation of alumni are “representing” at our event, I’m so glad… there is no way to know what everyone’s experience was for them at St. Agatha’s other than to ask…

This year I am asking you all to please come and “Make this special” I know that there are people coming that have not been there before. People from all over the country are going to be there, to share this time with us. Make some time again this year, really reach out, and bring one more family member or a special friend. Encourage and assist each other to make it to this reunion 2017. We all would love to see you there.

Some announcements:

1. Try to bring what you want to share, this year you can shop at the local “Food town” on Route 303. There is a “Rite Aide” store, Pizza, Chinese food and a sandwich shop and Oh! The “Dollar Store” all in the same lot. On, Route 9W across from the bus stop there is a “Healthy Food Deli”; you can get cooked food there as well.

2. You will only have to pay for parking once. You can leave and come back all day with your ticket in the front windshield.

3. Carpooling makes sense, so make plans now.

4. The North pool is not open for swimming. The South pool is. So, if it happens to be warm, bring a bathing suit.

5. There is boating in the park.

6. There is a 3.5-mile walkway around the lake in the park.

I invite you to visit these sites:

Bless you all

Good morning,


Recently, I discovered that my brothers and I spent a year or two at St. Agatha's in Nanuet, NY. My last name was Taggart at that time, as were my brothers, Thomas and Peter. I was an infant and it seems that one nun, Sr. Agnes Carmita was my primary caregiver. I would like to get more information about this, in particular, the reason my brothers and I were placed there.

Thank you in advance, Maureen O'Brien
