William WILLIAMS was an orphan and listed in the 1910 census
age: 2 yr. 2 months at the NY Foundling Asylum.

Who were his biological parents?

Was he adopted, if so, who adopted him and where did he live after leaving the NY Foundling Aslyum in NYC?

Did his adoptive parents change his name?

William WILLIAMS may have been a twin brother of
John Austin WILLIAMS b. Feb. 27, 1908 who also was in the 1910 census at the NY Foundling.

John Austin WILLIAMS was sent on an "Orphan Train" which went to San Antonio, Texas ca 1911 where he was adopted by James QUINN and his wife Phillipina BAUMANN.

If anyone has any information on John Austin WILLIAMS and William WILLIAMS I'd appreciate a reply.
