Sadly, my map has been lost in the maws of Google. I am trying to retrieve the map, but in the mean time, you can explore the map created by Clark Kidder at his website . His map details all the orphans sent by the New York Juvenile Asylum to all states, not just Illinois. Maybe one day my map will be restored. It had the location of Illinois orphan train riders and copies of their letters.  If you want to read letters from the orphans go to the Hathi Trust and look for "New York Juvenile Asylum" to find the annual reports which contain the letters!
