Kearns Family Genealogy Forum
Ihave been searching for information on a Kate Kearns, born in Connecticut. She is listed on my father's birth certificate as his mother. No further information is available other than the fact that she was about 19 or 20 in 1900. she was living in New York City at that time. My father's name was Ambrose Kearns. and he later added the middle name of Vincent. Thought this might be a family name. Kate stated that she was unable to care for her son as she had to work to support herself. He was left at the NYFH and sent to Nebraska on an Orphan Train in 1903. These records have only been avaiable to the publc for the past few years, so am really just beginning to search for her. If there is any connection to the Kate mentioned in your query, or if you have any suggestions for me, they will be greatly appreciated.
