Mercer Soldiers'Orphan School, (SOS)

The pictures of these nurses may not worked for the Orphanage I'm asking about....I'm hoping some one may remember the old Orphanage back in the early 1900s. It was nicknamed.......SOS, "SOLDIERS' ORPHAN SCHOOL" Back in 1909 the President of the SOS was August A Schutte; Vice President, Saville Schrner Felt; Secretary, Vinnie Fell Baird and the Treasurer, Phil Roby. I had my Grandmother and all her sisters living at the orphanage after their parents passed away. My Grandmother's family name was Nichols, birth name "POE" Her brothers were sent off to relatives and foster homes. Can anyone help me??? Sincerely, Don Griffith
