Hi,
I found my GGG Grandfathers naturalization papers the other day and he came over on the ship Orphan from Liverpool to New York on April 3, 1848. The master of the ship was Williams. Does anybody know any particulars on this ship? I have looked for information on this ship and can not find anything. Thanks in advance for your help.

I am searching for this same ship as well. I can't find anything either. Have you made any headway with this yet?
