Megan Smolenyak is sponsoring a context on her web site. She wants to know "whatever happened to Annie?"
The Annie in question wasn’t an orphan in the usual sense, but she is in a genealogical sense because her true story has been lost. Annie Moore was the first immigrant to land at Ellis Island. She arrived from Ireland with her brothers, Anthony and Phillip, on January 1, 1892. She was greeted with much fanfare and a $10 gold coin. It seems that she soon disappeared into America's melting pot.
Who can supply information about Annie Moore?
