Norma    3 Jan 1998
My father NORMAN DAUGHERTY and his brother GEORGE DAUGHERTY were placed in the Fairmont Children's home around 1919 where they lived for a couple years. I can find nothing on this children's home. Does anyone know of it, and possibly where records might be found from there. This is not an adoption case, the boys were orphaned and were never adopted. I believe my father went to 4th grade there, but I don't know if that would have been actually at the children's home, or to a close by school.
