As far as I know, the 1923 special census of dependent children did not take the names of the children, just statistics. It lists three institutions in Jackson, MS that provided residential care for children :

1) Mississippi Orphans' Home, no address. Under the auspices of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Home later known as Methodist Children's Home.

2) Mississippi Baptist Orphanage, no address. Under the auspices of the Baptist State Convention. Perhaps akin to the Baptist Children's Village, listed in 1978.

3) Mississippi Children's Home Society, no address, has 805 children under care---I am not sure if there was a mention of congregate care in an institution as opposed to foster homes.
