We are searching for information about my grandfather, Walter Franklin Lynthlin. He was in an orphange in the mid 1920's possible in the Beckley WVA area. The name of the orphange may have been Winding Gulf Orphanage, but not sure. When he was approximately five years old, he was put on a train and sent to Cleveland, VA the Back Valley area. A name tag was put on his wrist The "Walter Franklin or Franklin Walter was ledible but the last name was illegible. From the scribble the letters appeared to be something in the way of LYNTHLIN.Although, he used this as his last name it is not a real name. We do not know or have any way of finding out what his last name really is. We are seeking any information on any orphanges that may have some records pertaining to our grandfather. He used the birthday of June 6, 1923,however,it probably was not his real birthday. Thanks in advance for any information.
