Searching for Henry Bates, no known origin but was living in Manhattan NY in 1883. He had at least 2 children, Agnes born about 1878 and Kate (Catherine, Katie etc) born about 1881. They were both brought to an orphanage in Staten Island in 1883. Henry returned for Agnes but not Kate. Kate was eventally adopted, she is my great grandmother. The orphanage records show that mother had died and Henry's address at the time was 414 Greenwich St, NY, NY. My grandmother thought her mother's name was Annie Murphy. Any information would be helpful!
