James BridgesFamily Bracketville

I am looking for information on James Bridges family. The Mother Mary Ann Gary Bridges died somewhere around 1900, not sure of before or after, family lore has it she died in some epidimic. My grandmother was born in 1895 and was orphaned while quite young. Two other young siblings, Jack and Sonne born 1892, and my grandmother were placed in an orphanage when the mother died. James Bridges could not support them. Family lore has it that the orphanage was in Brackettville, Kinney, Texas. Can someone give me some idea how I might find this family? Thank you, Kathy
