Searching for my brother Charlie (birth name)

I am presently searching for my brother Charles Henry Johnson (birth name he was born 11.4.1963 in Edenton, NC. These are the birth names of the children. Susan Gayle Johnson, Thomas Floyd Johnson and Charles Henry Johnson. They were placed in St. Mary's Infant Home in 1966. Charlie was the first one to be adopted. I believe he was 3 at the time. I believe he was adopted as soon as the children became award of the state. They were taken away because of abuse. I believe this may have been in the papers. I am Susan. My brother Tom and I are searching for our younger brother Charlie. If anybody has any information or can be of any help please email me at countrymusic045@verizon.net. Thank you very much!

Surnames: Widner, Widener, White
Do you have any info on St. Mary's? My father, Wannis David Widner (b.1949), is my one roadblock in my genealogy and he spent his teen years (1960-1967?) in a St. Mary's in Virgina somewhere. (I know more about his first wife's genealogy than I do about him! haha) He carried the last name White until entering the orphanage where they found his last name was actually Widner (possibly Widener). He tried looking for his biological father in the early 1980's, but found he had died about 5 years prior. I am currently estranged from my father, but wanted to give the genealogy a shot.

Anyways, if you have any information on St. Mary's that would be appreciated. Was it the only St. Mary's orphanage/child's home in Virgina at the time? Have you gotten anywhere in your own search that might help me out? Thanks!

No I do not have any information about St. Mary's Infant Home in Norfolk, Va. I was there around 1966-1967. The only thing I know about St. Mary's is that it is now a school for disable children. It is no longer an orphanage. Good Luck in your search. Thanks!
