The advisers William F. Mott, Samuel Willets, Christopher R. Roberts, and Daniel W. James met, at a special meeting in January, to request compensation from the city for the property destruction during the Draft Riots. Good news came to the managers in May 1868. The nuisance of making do at Carmansville ended with the opening of their new home in Harlem, next to Hamilton Grange, the home of Alexander Hamilton. The African American community faithfully supported the Colored Orphan Asylum from its inception through the end of the Civil War. Perhaps the managers resented the support some in the black community had shown toward the Home for the Children of Freedwomen, later known as the Brooklyn Howard Colored Orphan Asylum, established in 1866 with financial assistance from the Freedmen's Bureau.
