Hi, from what I can find the Free Home for Consumptives was run by the YLCA - Young Ladies Charitable Association started by some sisters of St Joseph or some such? Have a spoon with YLCA and Free Home for Consumptives notated. Some references to the charities work and the home in a book "Woman; Her Position, Influence & Achievement Throughout the Civilized World" William C King. Speaks about Woman in Philanthropy". Sounds like late 1890's to early 1900's. Latest reference I have found is approx 1911 but not sure of earliest reference. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia: John Joseph Williams. Fourth bishop, consecrated 11 March, 1866 was the Bishop in Boston when the Free Home for Consumptives was created sometime around 1891. Seems to be associated with the Catholic charities during that time.
