Looking for the four orphaned children of Henry Clay Crawford Sr and Elizabeth Betty Franklin (d.c.1876). Henry Clay Sr was a much older man born about 1820 in TN or earlier who married a teenager in Clay Co, MO in 1868. They had four children Eliza R b.1869 who did not speak and was listed as "idiotic", Henry Clay Jrm b.1870 who died in Sebastian Co in 1930, and William R or William M born 1873 and Greene R or Greene M born about 1876. The family moved from Pottawatomie Co, KS to Arkansas to Comanche and Brown Co, TX and back to Sebastian Co, AR where Henry Clay Sr died in 1884. Where would the orphans have been placed? Their mother died shortly after the birth of her last child, Greene. Was there an orphans home or a place for retarded children in Sebastian Co in the 1880s. Where would I find records of their placement?
