On the 1893 plat it shows the St. Francis convent and St. Patricks Catholic Church at the
site of what I called the Anamosa hospital. I was a patient there at least twice as a
child and recall sisters as well as other nurses on staff.
I don't know the name official name for the hospital but would expect it was related
to the St. Francis convent.
The material below I found using Google and putting in "Hospital Anamosa Iowa"
and copied it into this reply. St. Lukes is a Methodist affiliated hospital.
Incidentally, the couple that bought the family farm from my parents were childless. The
wife survives and has set up a living trust whereas she can live on the farm and/or
benefit from it until she passes away. Then full possession goes to St. Lukes. In a
oblique way, helping St. Lukes helps the Anamosa hospital.
If you know names of people, at least a last name, try http://anywho.com/
and find a
person by entering at least a last name and the state. You find everyone with that last
name that lives in the state along with their listed phone number and street address. It
is startling how many you can locate that way. Perhaps you were already aware of this but
I wanted to be certain.
