Family Genealogy

Ruth Ann Young Parker was the sister to my ggg-grandfather John S. Young. She married Moses Parker in Tipton, Indiana in the mid-1850's. They traveled with John and his wife Mary to Polk County, Iowa in 1861. I believed they adopted two children from one of the 'orphan trains' while in Iowa prior to October 1864. Their names were Emma and George Ayers. I believe they were sent west after spending time in the Five Point House of Industry (also an orphanage) in New York City. Emma married Francis Roadruck who was a relation to they Young family and they moved along with Emma's brother George to Kansas in the early 1870's. The picture shows a paragraph about Moses from a book about Civil War dead from the Polk County, Iowa region. It mentions children which would be the adopted brother and sister.
