I have researched various children who resided in the Orphans’ Home in Warrick County over the last 17 years.
While doing Voyles family research I found a David G. Voyles had one, Alma Cummings, bound out to him from the Orphans’ Home in Warrick County. David and his wife, Hannah J. Bilderback of Hatfield, Spencer County, Indiana were married in 1881 and never had children of their own. David G. Voils, listed as, the person to whom, Alma Cummings was bound out from Warrick County Orphanage, on 7 March 1892. This is listed in the Articles of Apprenticeship on pages 171 – 172. Alma is listed in the 1900 and 1910 census living with David and Hannah. Both David and Hannah’s obituaries list an adopted daughter Alma Voyles as a survivor.
The next children I researched were the Birchler children, admitted to the home in 1910.
