Recently found the following about my great-great aunt, Rulany/Laurie Markin: "Father living, mother died of consumption Sept 1882. (Rulany) sent to Cleveland Protestant Orphan Asylum 17 Jan 1885. Brought back by Lola Zell, Matron 11 Sept 1885. Taken from the Home by the father 10 Nov 1885, to be taken care of by his brother Thomas Markin of Marion"
Also her sister, Harriett Markin: "Parents same as Rulany Markins who is sister. Surrendered by father. Brought by trustees of Upper Twp 17 Jan 1885 to Cleveland Protestant Orphan Asylum, Cleveland, OH. Brought back by Lola Zell, Matron 11 Sept 1885. Taken from the Home by father 10 Nov 1885, to be placed with cousin or nephew of father in Aide Twp."
Any idea where I can get more information? Thanks!
