Elizabeth and Mamie Falconberry
Two sisters Mamie/Mayme Falconberry age 16 in the 1910 census of Jefferson Co.,KY.Her sister Elizabeth was listed as age 20.
Both are in the orphanage in Louisville, in 1910 and 1920.
Mamie married and lived in Evansville, Indiana.It is not known yet, what happened to the sister.Some story was that she remained at the orphanage as a helper/officer in unknown capacity.
The story in the family goes, that when Mamie was about 8 years old their father dropped both of the girls at the orphanage, and left on a riverboat.Never heard from him again, and guess the girls had no other family.
Does any of this match any stories told in your families?
