Can someone please tell me where I might find the names of orphanages in the Dallas County area , operating around 1890-1920? My Grandmother, Viola Mae KIRBY, was born in Dallas May 1897. Was said to have been raised in an orphanage. One source lead me to believe that the orphanage could have been in Loisianna, but my searches there have been in vain. I think now, that I need to look into the possiblity that the orphanage may have been in Dallas, where she was born. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
