"The Masonic Home for Children and the Elderly was established in 1889 for dependents of members of the Fraternity and of the Eastern Star. Both orphans and children of destitute parents were admitted to the children's home. No payment was required. If orphans arrived with an inheritance, it was held in trust for them until they left the Home. Children were supported and educated until they completed their training of choice. But records were not preserved. Some few children are mentioned in A Consolidated Version of the Proceedings of the Grand Lodge, but this is by no means an extensive record of children provided for between 1889-1981. And even this record has been temporarily misplaced due to disorganization associated with a move to Chesterfield after almost a century on Delmar."

NOTE FROM DAVE LOSSOS (11/25/2011): As you can see, there are very few records available on residents of the Masonic Home. It is incredibly fortunate for researchers that the following information was preserved by Barb Matchett. Her Aunt and Uncle spent time there when they were kids. She recently came across a document that her Mom had locked away in her closet. It was a record of sorts, of children who had stayed at the home, and it has several pages of the children's names. These pages contained the children's names (including maiden names) and all have addresses of children next to their names. Thank you Barb.

NOTE FROM DAVE LOSSOS (6/18/2012): Here's a note I received from another resident of the Masonic Home that is including in the list below: I was 13 when I left the Masonic home, much healthier than when I went in. At 17 I joined the Navy and volunteered for submarine service. I lived in them for 12 years. I read the letter from Ms Wallace. It is not exactly like the way I remember her. I remember her as whipping me with belts and making me learn the 23rd Psalm."

This list contains more than 350 names, and there are at least that many more names (not listed here) that had no addresses.
August 28, 1952

Dear Alumnus:
I am sending you herewith a list of all of the alumni of the Masonic Home showing the latest address which we have for each one of you. In many cases we do not have the present address, so after studying the lists, if you can furnish us with a new or better address, I will greatly appreciate hearing from you. The star beside some of the names on the list indicates that that person was present at the Homecoming which was held on August 2. It was a very real pleasure to welcome those who were able to be here, and it is a matter of regret that some or you could not attend. I have now received a print of the group picture which was taken in front of the Administration Building and I am happy to tell you that it is very good. I can obtain copies of this picture for $1.00. If you want a copy of the picture, send me your dollar immediately and I will order them without delay. It will be necessary that I have your orders within the next two weeks in order to get the pictures for you. I am also enclosing a copy of the booklet about the Masonic Home which was published in June of this year. Some of you got a copy while you were here at the Reunions but I am quite sure that many failed to do so. There is also enclosed a new aerial vew card of the Home and a picture card of the Woman's Building, both of which I thought you would like to have. I would like to take this opportunity of extending to each one of you a very cordial invitation to call on us whenever you are in St. Louis.
Very sincerely yours,
Lewis C. Robertson
Dear Masonic Home Children:
Thank you a million for the gift. I have bought a wonderful chair and beautiful lamp so every time sit down to turn on the lamp a think of you. Each one has contributed to my comfort an pleasure for the rest of my life.
God bless you,
Mother Waller

******* Note received November 2016:
My grandfather Thomas A. McWilliams died suddenly in 1930 in Appleton City MO and left some eight children of whom the three youngest were placed in the Home. The older ones were old enough and able to work, and went with the mother to Kansas City. My father, Richard (Dick), was four when he went into the Home, Melvin was six, and Margaret was 12. My grandmother felt if they all stayed in Appleton City they would amount to nothing, and was helped by my grandfather’s Masonic brothers there to get these youngest three into the Home in St Louis.
Margaret married Ted Brown (spelling correction) had three children and died in 2002.
My father was Richard H McWilliams (altho actually he was baptized and registered as merely “Dick” but everyone assume that was a nickname so used Richard, but he never did). He stayed at the Home from the time he was four years old until he graduated from the old Blewett High School in 1944. He married, had two children and died in Boston in 2007. He worked for General Motors his entire life, retired early and enjoyed all the benefits that eventually caused the company to go bankrupt.
Emily Jean Marshall (note spelling corrections) did marry my uncle Melvin. He dropped dead suddenly from a heart attack in 1961 in Cleveland, leaving four children all of whom now live in California. She was always called Jeannie as she hated the name Emily. Jeannie died in 2014.
Her brother John B. Marshall was with the service for a while (thus the VA address) but moved with his wife back to St Louis eventually running a very successful ice cream parlour chain there, the last of which was at the new St Louis airport for some years. He was always called “JB”..don’t know when exactly he passed away but he died before Richard (below) did in 2013.
Richard Marshall was a businessman in St Louis and at one point involved with Missouri government. He died in 2013.

John B. Marshall -- Capt., 1021 Columbia Drive Alexandria, Va,
*Richard M. Marshall -- 7721 Lile Ave., St, Louis 17, Mo. Margaret hated being there, not wanting to be a baby like the younger kids but out in the world like her two older sisters. She trained as a secretary and married her boss (Ted Brown). My father loved the Home..said he had the best treatment anyone could ask for. The Matrons were kind..he never remembered being hit or mistreated. He would take the bus in the summers back to Kansas City then his mother would take him to the older sister’s home with her husband in Clinton. He would spend the summers fishing and working on the farm with the mother and other siblings visiting from time to time, then the mother would come for him before school started and take him back to KC, then the bus on his own over the old 40 Highway back to St Louis. I would imagine someone would have gone with him when he was 4,5,6 or so but I never heard that..just that they put him on the bus and off he went.. For some years Dick Marshall and my Dad had rooms that shared a wall in their closets: they carved a hole through the closet door and passed things back and forth at night without being discovered. At least through the late 1960s Dad corresponded with one of the Matrons from the Home at Christmastime. He had nothing but wonderful memories of his time there.
