John Henry Roy & his brother William Ernest Roy were in the Home for the Friendless in Atlanta in 1930. At that time the facility was for "short term" care. Both John & Billy are also listed on the 1930 census with their father and sisters. The name of the orphanage was changed to Hillside Cottage and is still active today.
I have more info on this family from Henry J. Roy's enlistment in 1905 thru John Henry Roy's children and grandchilden, including a copy of Essie Mae (Smith) Roy's death certificate.
