The Bibb County Children's Home was on Cochran Short Route. The county changed the name of the road years ago. I don't remember the new name(sorry),but, it was about 5-7 miles outside the Macon City Limits on Interstate 16-south.
Just past the home is an elementary school named Bernd(it used to be Florence Bernd Elementary) on the right. The Children's Home was on the left.I will look up the new name and email you back with it. Good luck

The Children home has been closed since the 1980. The names you mention don't ring a bell. This wasn't an orphange . It was a place appointed by ythe court for children who needed a place to stay while there families workrd ou there problems. Almost everyone I knew went back to their families.

I only have the information from the census record to go by which states it was the orphans home south georgia conference methodist episcopal church south in Macon City. I have an adult pic of Louise. She didn't stay there long as, my grandmother Icie took her in and raised her along with her daughter. Louise Jones' parents were very poor. They pulled around a cart with their dog. Casey Louise' brother stayed with their parents Jim M. Jones and Mae ?
Louise wanted so desperately to find out about her parents before she passed. Thank you for your help.

I was at the Bibb County Childrens Home in Bibb County,Ga. FROM THE SUMMER OF 1960 TIL THE WINTER OF 1965. It was a great place. I was there along with my older brother and sister and a younger sister. We were sent there because our momma was too sick to care for us [kidney diease]. And who knows where our so called daddy was at., They took very good care of us. I for one deserved a lot more spankings than I got. Thats right spankings not beatings.
Anyway we never wanted for anything while there. It was probably the best thing ever to happen to me. If not for going there I would have had grown up in downtown Macon.
