Early Illinois Women

Centenary souvenir of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Poor of St. Francis, 1845-1945

Notes:

This booklet provides a background to a religious order of sisters founded in 1845 by Frances Schervier in the German/French border town of Aiz-la-Chapelle. A branch of this order eventually came to America, founding hospitals and working among the poor in Cincinnati and Covington, Kentucky, Columbus, Ohio, and Quincy, Illinois.
