Gloria, there is a children's home in Columbus, Lowndes Co., MS. The name of the home in the 1920's was called PALMER ORPHANAGE FOR CHILDREN and is now called PALMER HOME FOR CHILDREN. The home was founded in 1895 and is still in operation. I was raised at the home from 1940 thourgh 1954. The children could not be adopted. I have alot of historical information on the home including children living there in the 1920's. My records are at my home in Mississippi. I am in California at this time, so do not have access to the records. If you will send me your e-mail or your snail address I will get back in touch with you when I return to Mississippi. In the mean time you could use the 1920 or the 1930 census for Lowndes Co., MS to look at the list of the children living at Palmer at that time. Hope this information will help you in your search. Palmer Home for Children has a web site. It is http://www.palmerhome.org.
