I am looking for any information on a family of four that lived in Boston Mass. in 1881. They were Albert AHEARN (a clerk), his wife Maria, their daughter, and a newborn son.Albert was probably from the State of Main., and either he or his father probably came over on the boat. Their children were both orphaned, so we assume that Albert and his wife Maria, both died, probably from a plague.The children were sent west on an Orphanage Train.The train stopped at every town, and the children were marched out in front of local people in the hopes that they could find a home.The boy got as far as the Berkshires, not too far from where the train passed in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.It was here that he was separated from his sister, never to see her again until he was 55 years old.He stayed in the Berkshires, at the Bliss Farm, until he was about 14, when he ran away to Michigan.Here he found work at the logging camps, because he lied and said he was 16. The boy was my grandfather, Albert Frederick AHEARN, born in Boston, Mass. 21 April, 1881.
