Sheltering Arms Orphanage - 1860-1880 Mobile,Alabama

Does anyone have information on the Sheltering Arms Orphanage at Mobile, Alabama? Two brothers,Beauregard Quimby/Quimberly and Burwell Quimberly/Quimby was in Sheltering Arms Orphanage between 1860-1880. Beauregard had been placed or adopted before 1870. Can anyone help on these records? I have been told that the orphanage has burned since and all the records were destroyed. Since both Beauregard and Burwell were born in the early 1860s, they would not have remembered much, if any at all, about their life before the orphanage. I am trying to find information on their parents. Bobbie
