I have my Great Grandmother's picture album of the Children's Home. Daisy and Ray Compton were their names and they ran the home for a few years around 1920's. There are probably 2 dozen pictures of the Home and Workers and Kids, but only a few names. My Grandmother liked living at the Home because there were alot of children and activities going on. Here are some names on the pictures but most of these were the people that worked there.
Mrs. Marker
E. Kennison
Ellen Neal
Donald Kress
Ralph Grove
Mrs Hunt and Nursery Children
Picture of the groups of children are at :
Picnic at Fitzgeralds Farm
Boys helping on Farm at the Home
School, dressed up in front of the Home, Boys, and Girls.
May Pole Dance
also picture of all the toy on Christmas morning -but no children in it.
