Surnames: Andersen, Anderson
Does anyone know of any orphanages in or around Aurora, IL in 1918? My grandfather Alfred Leon Andersen (Anderson) was in one when his mother died in 1918 and until his father remarried sometime before 1930. He was there with his siblings: Ethel Marie, Harold and Bernice. He had another sister too that died while in the orphanage and I'm trying to find out her name and what she died from, I believe she was around 8 or 9 when she died.

There is/was an orphanage in Aurora, don't know the name or how it functioned.
Six miles north is Mooseheart, the Child City, which still funtions. It was started as a home for children of deceased Moose members. Bob Zieniger runs the museum. Call the campus to get connected to the museum.
