Seeking descendants of real ‘orphan trains’
Monday, September 24, 2012 7:35 AM
One of the performers in the Pulse Opera House production of "The Orphan Train" is seeking descendants of the children who came to the Midwest aboard that train.
David Templeton is researching the history of the orphans delivered by train to Huntington, Bluffton and Wabash. He has found several articles mentioning children who came by train and were adopted by area families between 1854 and 1929.
Anyone with information about descendants of orphans who arrived by train is asked to send information to pulsedirect@ pulseoperahouse.org or Pulse Opera House, PO Box 631, Warren, IN 46792.
"The Orphan Train," which opened Sept. 21 at the Pulse Opera House in Warren, tells the stories of nine children who rode the orphan train.
Upcoming performances are Sept. 27, 28 and 29 and Oct. 4, 5 and 6. All shows start at 8 p.m. For reservations, visit www.pulseoperahouse.org or call 375-7017.
