Does anyone have any infromation on the Children's Home
Society of Ohio which was located 38 W. 1st Ave., in
Franklin Co. Frank H. Darby was State Supt. I would like
to find what happened to the records from there. My husband's two Uncles were adopted from there sometime after
March 1896. Lemuel McGown or McGowan b. Dec 23, 1886 &
Earl McGown b. Nov. 8, 1890. Both were born in Washington
C.H., Ohio & transferred the Children's Home there.

I am waiting for information from the Ohio Historical Society regarding the Children's Home Society of Ohio. I think my Dad may have been there before being taken in by a couple in Henry County, Ohio. I have been lead to believe that the records are now in their custody.

Please let me know if you are still looking for records from here and I will share whatever information I may receive.

The information that the Ohio Historical Society provided about my Dad who was in the Children's Home Society in Columbus and his adoption, subsequent return, and then fostered out has been more than I could ever have hoped to find. The cost of $25 with additional charge for photocopies was a small price to pay for the information and the insight I gained into my Dad's very unhappy and bewildering childhood. If you haven't contacted them, it might be well worth a try.
