Surnames: Widner, Widener, White
Do you have any info on St. Mary's? My father, Wannis David Widner (b.1949), is my one roadblock in my genealogy and he spent his teen years (1960-1967?) in a St. Mary's in Virgina somewhere. (I know more about his first wife's genealogy than I do about him! haha) He carried the last name White until entering the orphanage where they found his last name was actually Widner (possibly Widener). He tried looking for his biological father in the early 1980's, but found he had died about 5 years prior. I am currently estranged from my father, but wanted to give the genealogy a shot.

Anyways, if you have any information on St. Mary's that would be appreciated. Was it the only St. Mary's orphanage/child's home in Virgina at the time? Have you gotten anywhere in your own search that might help me out? Thanks!
