Orphans Home of Phelps County Nebraska

My great grandmother Hulda Larson and her brothers Otto and Robert were the first 3 children in the Orphans Home per my grandmother and mother. I have a picture of the float in the Parade at Holdrege, Nebraska October 1933 Festival representing the Orphans Home of Phelps County. It has 3 children 1 girl and 2 boys. They represent my great grandmother and her brothers. Their mother died during or shortly after giving birth to their sister Carrie. Carrie was adopted by the Rev or Dr. that started the home. Their father Gustav remained on his farm with his older sons Walford and August. He remarried but the woman did not want the younger children because they could not work the farm.
If you have the records of the start of the home I would very much like to have the information. I know that Gustav, Mary and their children Walford, August and Hulda came over from Sweden. The other children Robert, Otto and Carrie were born in Nebraska.
