I am looking for any information one might could give me on this facility. Specifically anyone who might have known someone who was there in the 1930's or early 1940's. Looking for information on a Joyce Helen West who was there all of her childhood. Thanks

I was wondering if you ever found any information. I am also looking for information.

I have a descendant who was there in the 1920 and 1930 census, but aged out soon after.

I did but the records were not complete. They have a reunion every year for all who have stayed there. The employee I talked to said that looking at some of the old photos that they have and talking to some of the older people at the reunion was my best chance at finding information. It was during a hard time in America and I was told that so many kids were taken there it was impossible to keep records on all of them. I later found that my grandmother was transferred to an orphanage in the mountains of North Carolina. Hope this helps a little in your search, good luck.

me and my brother went there after our mother passed. we went there in 1946. my name is Richard Johnson. my brother was bobby Johnson. I have lost contact with everyone who was there. it would be nice to hear from someone who was there then. I ran away in 1953 . but as you say. times were hard then. I was to young to understand that I was lucky to have food and clothing then. I'm older and more wise now. may god bless you in your search. Richard"
