The Tie That Binds
What Became of the
I have researched various
children, who resided in the Warrick County Orphans' Home in Boonville, Indiana, since the year 2002.
These children are found in the census, birth, death and marriage records of Warrick and surrounding counties. Many children listed in the earliest register have no parent information listed for them.
Three important resources:
the Inmates of the Orphans'Home Warrick County, Indiana
Articles of Apprenticeship
