I went to the orphanage home looking for records. The records for 1900 were destroyed in a fire which burned down the building. My g-grandfather was alive at that time too. Story is that when the mother died, he took the 4 older children and left the 3 smaller ones in the orphanage. I say 3 because no one knew of Ida who was listed along with Willmer, Ruby, and Bess Morse.
I was told by Ruby;s son that she and the others were in a home in Stamps AR before going to Hot Springs. Do you k now anything about that place? Thanks Betty Contact me email@example.com
