If you have a paid subscription with ancestry.com, I recommend searching your relative's name and look through the US FED & STATE CENSUS' for only the years they lived in that location. ie searching examples:
name surname, click on US censuses, say he was in Bremwood between 1910 to 1935: then look in 1910, 1915, 1920, 1925, and 1930.
odd numbered years are STATE census. I recently found the name of the home my mother was living in in 1940 in Des Moines. There were several buildings that were built for orphan useage in the mid-late 1800's. The Des Moines Orphanage as some believe was just one big building. They were actually all over the state of Iowa. Just in Des Moines, as I discovered, were several buildings in within the city. The main building was just the business end of it.
In case someone comes across this,the home I found where my mother lived, was called :Des Moines Home For Friendless Children
