Orphan Trains to Missouri

by Michael D. Patrick and Evelyn Goodrich Trickel

“As an ‘orphan train’ crossed the country, it left part of its cargo at each stop, a few children in one small town and a few in another. . . .As the train moved to its next stop, those children not taken feared no one would ever want them.” Missouri’s central location and numerous small farming towns along the railroad tracks made it the perfect hub for the orphan trains. This book documents the history of the children on those trains.
