What happened to Raleigh’s orphans? Graves of Catholic unfortunates hard to trace.

The cemetery for Raleigh’s Catholic orphanage, which operated from 1899 to 1976, was moved after the land was sold to N.C. State University. Finding those children, some of whom died in fires there, isn’t easy. No marker exists for the orphans, whose home stood in sight of the grand Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral.
