I'm trying to find out any information I can on my grandfather, but I'm at a standstill. He was left at a boarding home in pennsylvania probably around 1911. His name was Jack Borden and he received around four postcards from his mother whose name was marked as Marie Borden from Utica, New york. She then stopped paying and he was thrown out of the house at about four years of age. A mail woman felt sorry for him and adopted him. He never knew his birth year; it was presumed to be 1908. Not sure how he got the birthdate he did, if he remembered it or if it was just picked. He thought his father's name was Edward, but wasn't sure. I can't seem to find anything of a Marie Borden in utica, new york. And I'm not sure where he was born. I'm feeling pretty hopeless on this right now. Any tips would be appreciated.
