According to her baptismal certificate, her full name at birth was Johanna Mansfield Sullivan; however, she was called Anne from the time she was born.[2] Her parents' names were Thomas Sullivan and Alice Cloesy Sullivan and they were Irish immigrants who couldn't read and had virtually no money.[2] In 1874 her mother, Alice, died, probably of tuberculosis;[3] after which Anne and her younger brother, Jimmie were sent to an almshouse in Tewksbury, Massachusetts (today part of Tewksbury Hospital). She was at Tewksbury for four years.[2] In 1880, Anne, who was blind from untreated trachoma and had untreated intestinal worms[citation needed], was sent to the Perkins School for the Blind. Anne had a brother, Jimmie (James),[4] born in 1869,[3] a sister Ellen born in 1867[3] and a sister, Mary.[citation needed]
