Seeking information on my mother' grandfather. He was placed in an orphanage by his mother and never taken out when she remarried. I do not know either of his parents names. Some of the children were Civil War orphans, but he was not listed in that section. I found him at age 8 in the Lancaster, Pa. 7th ward "Home for Friendless Children"
His information is as follows. Born July 28, 1861 and died April 1, 1925, at Ephrata, Pa. He married Elizabeth Bally in 1889. He was a cobbler and weaver by trade.
