I read somewhere that it wasn't unusual for a dad to put the kids onto an orphanage if they were small and the mother died. They called them "half-orphans". I guess back in those days dads didn't do the child-care thing like nowadays! It's possible the orphanage if it still exists might have records that far back, but I've never checked into that!
