What was the orphan train? I'm looking for my mother Alice Chandler who lived with a Bess Goodyknootz. Adoption papers were never signed.

Sorry those names are not in the book I have. If you are intrested in the orphan train movement it is very well documented on the net. Type in "Orphan trains" to a search engine and follow the links. It was a very intresting time in history.

Have you ever heard of a similar book for Ny to Wisconsin? And does your book cover children form the New York Foundling? or just those from the Childrens aid society?
Thanks, Mike

Hi Sally,

You said that you would do look-ups of Orphan Train Riders from the book that you purchased.

I am searching for an Elizabeth (Lizzie) Wilson who was born approximately 1882. She was accompanied by her brother whose age and name are not known. Lizzie was adopted by Peter and Carolina Malloy in either Braidwood or Spring Valley, Illinois.

Lizzie Wilson married John Crane in Spring Valley, Illinois in 1898. These people were my grand-parents.

I would appreciate any information that you may be able to provide.

Thank you, Tom Crane
