As part of research of our g-gf, Frederick Baker, b NY ~1863, research(by Lukas Weinstein, NY) shows Orphan Train records that Fred was brought to Ohio for adoption by Capt. John H James, lawyer.
1860 and 1870 census of Urbana OH shows attorney John H James, b ~1801, Vermont.
Wondering if anyone has insight/records in to John H James, of Champaign County, and his participation in Orphan Train Project.
Fred Baker was adopted by Samuel and Mary Reeve and grew up in Preble County Ohio. Working to determine more on Fred's ancestry.
