Several of my great great uncles stayed there and were listed in the 1860 census, but their surnames were spelled MEAHAN instead of MEEHAN. One of them learned a printing trade there and eventually worked for the Augusta Chronicle.
I do not know the circumstances surrounding the uncle's stay at the orphanage, but would sure like to know more. Eventually their mother got the boys out and moved to Augusta, GA. I have found no record of their father MICHAEL J MEEHAN's death, butbelieve he may have been taken to a convalescent home nearby.
Is there any way I too can obtain a copy of the booklet?
