My Great Grandfather Clifford Was adapted by the Norris Family off the Orphaned Train. He borded in Pennsylvania. There is no record I have found only the story from his young mind that his Mother had pale white skin, long dark hair and believes his birth name was Round or Rounds.

Hi Gracia,

Here is a link that may or may not help as you didn't give a birth range:

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~orphanshome/orphansoffice/notepad/pacites.htm

I would also suggest trying familysearch.org for census and other records, you can plug in names and dates and see what comes up.  There are many sites online as well as books on Amazon.com written about the Orphan Trains.  Good luck in your research!  :-)
