Trying to determine whether my Barnes family children were placed in an orphanage on Staten Island or removed to NYC. Letters from one child from the 1920s notes in was orphaned in Staten Island and he is listed in 1870 Census as an inmate at Poor House on Staten Island. Can anyone tell me what orphanages might have been on Staten Island between 1862-1872? The father died in the Civil War in 1862 and the mother died the next year. Have pension applications which were submitted but these did not give location where children were at.
