Riders on an Orphan Train The Orphan Train movement began in 1854 and continued until 1930. During this 75 year time span, somewhere between 150,000 and 200,000 orphaned, abandoned, and homeless children were sent "west" from New York on trains to find new families. There were two main organizations that "shipped" children west to new homes. They were: 1) The Children's Aid Society run by Rev. Charles Loring Brace, and 2) The New York Founding Hospital, operated by the Sisters of Charity. According to the records at the Children's Aid Society, Anna was born on April 23, 1895 and William was born on July 23, 1897. Anna spent the first 15 years of her life in Staten Island, New York. Anna was a wonderful homemaker and cook and was very happy in her roles as wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Anna passed away June 8, 1968 in Valley Falls, Ks.
