Looking for the name of the orphanage in St. Louis in 1910.
It was located near Newstead and Maryland Ave.
The children would have attended Eugene Fields School.

Darrell,

Since this is the Missouri Census board - do you have a name that might be listed in the census of this orphanage? If you can supply name, appr. birth year, race, gender, state of birth, birthplace of parents, etc. it would be easier to try and find this orphanage in the census and thus possibly learn the name.

If we can't approach it from that direction, I can move your post to a board where you might have more success in getting this query answered.

Thanks!

Surnames: Bennett
Pearl Bennett and Clara Bennett
Pearl was born in 1900, I believe Clara was born abt 1898.
They were both white, females, Both born in Missouri, There mother was born Missouri father we believe either Illinois or Tennessee.

They both were sent to the orphanage approx. 1907 or after.
Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Darrell

Darrell,

I looked but failed to find the Bennett girls in 1910 St. Louis.

If you haven't seen it already you may like to read this article on early St. Louis orphanages:
