Orphan Train which came thru Ford county

Classification: Query
Does any one have any knowledge of the Orphan Train which brought children from New York to farm families in Ford County back in the late 1800s? I understand they had advertisements of the names of the children available for adoption and it was printed in the papers PRIOR to the train coming to town. I know this happened as my husband's grandfather was a child of the Orphan Train . Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you!
