Nazareth Orphans' Home 1906-1956

I have a book about this orphanage. It contains a history including names of children who lived there, "received" and "dismissed" dates, whether father, mother, both or neither parent is deceased. According to the text, the list is likely incomplete. There are also names and photos of people who worked there and several group photos of children. Admissions were from: Rowan, Cabarrus, Catawba, Guilford, Alamance, Richmond, Forsyth, Stanly, Davie, Gaston, Cleveland, Caldwell, Randolph, Martin, Madison, Iredell and Pitt Counties as well as and 6 from Virginia and 2 from Florida. There are too many names listed to mention here, but I would be glad to look up a name if requested.

I am looking for Gainey children who were put in an orphanage in 1920. There were 7 children. My grandfather was Joe F Gainey age 6. Their mother died in late 1920 and their father didn't want to raise them. They found each other when they were in their 40s, but no one discussed what orphanage they were in. The younger children must have been adopted and names changed. As a family we need to know what happened. My grandfather is deceased and there is no one left to ask. Please contact me at:

Thank you, Pamela

The Gainey children were from Johnston/Sampson counties. They lived in the Banner-Bensonville area with their mother until she died. The other set of grandparents living were the Weavers in that area.

Thanks again for any replies.

My birth name was Joyce Johnson. I was adopted in 1956 from an orphanage in Richmond. My birthdate is 1/30/56. My mother was 17 but I don't know her name. If you could try to find any information I would greatly appreciate it!
