Hi..Good to hear from you. I can't remember what all I put in my post about my gfather. He passed away when my father was 10 years old and about all he and the rest of the family knew was about the orphanage, his brother (who served in the Spanish American War) died shortly after and his mother spoke german and left them there to come back after getting land in the west with their father. It's taken me all of my 75 years to find out the entire story of the family, visited the block where the orphanage stood, and talked to someone who remember it. Only one building still stands today (the chapel) as a private residence. On my next trip to NO I plan to see if I can see the building and see if the cemetery is still in the back yard, which is very large. I even found my guncles grave over in MS. I could go on forever about my search..I gave a 2 hour talk to a family reunion group a couple of years ago. You take care and let's keep up the conversation.
