I have been told that my great grandfather, Urile J. Cates, went to Texas via the "orphan train". I am not familar with that term. Is there a listing of passengers, places the train originated and destinations? I think he was a young adult and may have been married to Callie Watson at the time. Maybe he met her on the train! Urile was born in McMinn County TN in 1865, married Callie and they raised four boys in Texas starting around 1887. Sometime before 1887 he left TN for TX. Both are buried in Texas. I am not sure where Callie was born or who either of their parents were.

I am looking for information on John Parker b. abt. 1780 in Maryland who married Rachel Shipley b. abt. 1784 in Pennsylvania. I believe that John's family moved to East Tennessee in the late 1790s, probably to the Rhea/Roane County area. John probably met Rachel and married her in this area. I do not know either of their parent's names. John and Rachel had seven children before 1822 when they moved to Chambers County Alabama.

The family probably moved there from McMinn County or Bledsoe County, TN. By the time of the Alabama listings, the father is apparently deceased. It is information on him that we would like to have (his name could have been John).. The wife's name is Lucy, born in 1795. The children are James (my g-grandfather), born 1818 in Tennessee; John, born 1821 in Tennessee; Elizabeth, born December 1823 in Tennessee; Margaret, born May 1829 in Tennessee; and Louisa, born 1831.
