Jodie, the term inmates was used by census takers for children in orphanages. The information provided to the census taker on the 1940 census has mistakes. If I recall correctly they have all of the children being born n MS including myself. I am listed as Ann Harris. My copy is in MS and I am vacationing in CA. Children could not be adopted which is the reason we were paced in Palmer. Only the person or persons who placed us there could take us out of Palmer. As to Lucile Martin and her siblings I recall that Lucile was in college when I arrived. I remember Lucile . She had a sister named Helen. My photos and files on Palmer are all in MS. When I return I will give you more information. Palmer was my home from 1940 until 1954 which is when I graduated from college. I hope this gives you some insight about Palmer and Lucile.
