I am attempting to research the birth family of my greatgrandmother, Jenny (Costello) Blessington. She was born Jane Carroll to Henry and Jane (Palmer) Carroll on Feb. 3,1885 in NY,NY. She was baptized at St. Vincent Ferrer's Catholic church in NY on March 24, 1885. For reasons unknown, she was a rider on what is known as the "orphan train" and was taken in and raised by Michael and Margaret Costello in Clinton County, Iowa. She married Bert Blessington in 1908. Any information on Henry and Jane (Palmer) Carroll would be greatly appreciated; as would a good nudge in the right direction on how to find info from orphanages and death records in NY.
