Does anyone know when that orphanage was started? My G-Grandfather, frank Bowman, was an orphan, b. Dec.25, 1848 in New York City. He states on the census parents unk. The next thing I know of him is his marriage to my G-grandmother, Elizabeth Burch in Vicksburg, Renville Co.MN. She was the daughter of Simeon Burch, who lived in Owatonna in 1860 and faught in the Indian War for a short period. Is it possible an orphan train could have left some children at the orphanage?
