My birth father Robert Allen Wilson and his sister Evelyn Wilson were placed in an orphanage in Jan/Feb 1940 after their mother died at the time Robert was almost 10 and Evelyn was 12 their father was still alive but was unable to look after them. The family in 1940 were living at Poplar Avenue, Memphis, Tennessee. Robert and Evelyn were only in the orphanage a short while before they were removed by a family member but Evelyn was returned. Can anyone suggest as to which orphanage they would have been placed and how I could perhaps access any records. My email address is johneggleton417@btinternet.com. Many thanks.
