While searching the 1930 census I found my half brother and sister listed as "inmates" in St Joseph's Orphanage Tucson AZ. They were 3 and 5 years old.
The names are Frances O SLAUGHTER and John H. SLAUGHTER. Later this last name was changed to KING.
Where can I find more regards regarding the Orphanage and records. My dad placed Frances and John in this orphanage after the death of his wife during childbirth. Their newborn child also died.
How can I find more information/records regarding the orphanage and their stay. My aunt (Minnie A ) and uncle Arthur V KING came from CA and removed them and raised them along with their children. They changed the last name of my siblings from SLAUGHTER to KING.
My dad and family had full loving contact with the children during his lifetime. Dad died in 1975 and that is the last time I saw my sister Frances. She would be 78 years old now (2002) and I believe she lives in the Sacramento CA area.
My brother Johnnie died in 1980.
Any ideas for further research? Besides Frances, I am the last direct line of William R. and Sarah Slaughter, who were our grandparents. Wm R died in AZ and Sarah died in CA.
