Classification: Query
Surnames: Elmer
my great Aunts Martha b.1848,Mary b 1853 Hellen b 1851 their last name was Elmer. They may have been riders on the Orphan Trains between 1863 and 1865.Two brothers show up years later George and Charles. parents names are Andrew w. Elmer and Mary elizabth freshwater Elmer. all were born in New Bern N. C. except Andrew he was born in N. Y. in 1827.The reason I think they were on a train is Charles wound up out west when he was 15.
