St. Joseph orpahn asylum in new orleans

I am looking for records from the st. Joseph orphan asylum in New Orleans. My great grand mother was an orphan on the orphan train from New York. We never had her actual birthday or parents names or her name. We were always told her name was Mary o'brien or Mary ann brien. It wasn't till recently that I came across adoption papers from her last family that raised her and in the papers it shows she came from the st. Joseph orphan asylum out of New Orleans. While she was alive (passed in 2009) she lived to 100 she never liked talking about her life but would sometimes tell us of the many families she lived with none of which actually adopted her. So when searching all the census it's hard to find her. With this new information I might actually be able to get her real name from the orphanage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
