I am trying to locate the parents of the following children, who i believe are siblings. You won't find them on any census with their parents, as I believe the parents died of tuberculosis, in time frame of Nov 1890 - 1899 and the children went to other homes to live, basically as boarders.

Marshall Felix Canada
Callie May Canada
Eva Louis Canada
