From the 1930 Census Allie E Medlin is listed as a 'student' in Thomasville, Davidson, North Carolina: If you look in the area of Thomasville there was an orphanage - originally called Mills Home, but still exists as part of a Baptist Children's Homes in that area. You might want to check with them.
