Surnames: Brooks/Valuer/Haney/Hurley/Baker
My grandfather Stanley Thomas Brooks was placed in this orphanage as a young boy. He was born in McDowell N.C. in 3 March 1897. He later moved to Pickens, South Carolina. His father's name may have been Jason with brothers James and John, not sure if Brooks was his correct last name as we think his father placed him there because he was running from the law. Do you have any records from this orphanage or information on how to get the records? Thank you and good luck to you in your search. Robin Brooks

Unfortunately, I was unable to find any orphan records. I believe they were lost in the fire that destroyed Elhanan. The library in Marion, McDowell County, NC might have a small amount on info on Elhanan. My email address is satts123@sc.rr.com. Send me your email address and I'll keep it on file in case I come across anything else.
Good luck to you, too.
Fran
