Is anyone familiar with the St Thomas Orphanage in Nelson Co, KY. I would guess it was associated with the St Thomas Catholic Church that is located not far from downtown Bardstown. Are there any records of those that may have lived there and not adopted. In the 1900 Nelson Co, KY census, a Francis Alvey age 7 was listed as living there. Not sure of his parents but believe he later ended up in WI and his children and grandchildren are in TX. In 1910 it looks like this same Francis Alvey is living with a Smith family in Marion Co, KY.
