3 siblings in orphanage in or near Luray Va early 1900's

I am trying to track down info about my grandmother and her siblings. They were put into an orphanage in the early 1900's in or near luray VA. The siblings names are: Raymond Legg, Wesley Legg, and Mary Pearl Legg.

From what we have been told by my grandmother prior to her death, she went to the orphanage as a toddler and lived there off and on until 8 or 9 years old. She then went to live with a family with the last name of either Heslip or Easely. Her brothers were sent elsewhere to live(I think one went to Ohio and the other to Michigan maybe). I know that Raymond got married and resided in or near Richmond for most of his life.

When my grandmother was old enough to receive SS benefits, she could not prove her age due to no birth certificate, and the state had to pull information from census records. Supposedly the orphanage she had stayed in at or near Luray VA burned down, and all records were destroyed.

I am looking for any information about an orphanage name, anyone who may be able to help me with my efforts to track down information about her parents, information about her life and any other information that may be available. I have researched, but just cant seem to come up with anything.
