Fascinating subject, M Hilliard. You might want to consider heading up such a project yourself. Many of our "cousins" would hop on board, I'm sure!

I just found another possible Texas orphan train profile.

I was just adding sources for the unsourced list, and found the mention on her gravestone. Maybe someone can get some clues from this profile.
