No one has replied to my message but I have done some research and have a reply to myself, hopefully it will help someone else. I found a book written by the department of Commerce bureau of the census called "Benevolent Institutions 1910" and it can be found at

Any way it gives two orphanages in Idaho in 1910:
1/ Boise Receiving Home 740 Warm Spring Ave founded in 1908 2/ Lewiston Receiving Home for North Idaho 1806 Eighteenth Ave founded in 1908. I have also found that the records of the North Idaho Children's Home, Inc. were donated to the University of Idaho by the Children's Home in August of 1984.

I am still searching for the orphange that my father-in-law and his three brothers were taken to when found abandoned in a hotel in Jerome, Idaho in about 1913 or 1914.

Any help on this search will be greatly appreciated.
