Classification: Query
Surnames: Watson

I am looking for any information on the Watson family sent from NY to Charles City Iowa. The names are Glen Watson, Byron Watson and Everett Watson. I found Everett was adopted by Earl Kennard. Everett's name was changed to Everett Sherald Kennard.
There is a Byron Watson in the 1920 census living with Ray Anson Tight. I found Glen Watson living with the James Brook family.
Glen was born abt. 1907 NY
Bryon was born abt. 1908N
Everett was born abt. 1910 NY
Any information on these people or the orphanage where they may have placed these boys would be greatly appreciated.
