A History Of Events And Happenings From Exactly One Hundred Years Ago

Child Abandoned In Texas

On June 16, 1912 slightly after midnight, John Willaughby arrived home in Houston, Texas and found an abandoned baby on his doorstep. The child was undernourished and apparently in need, found wrapped up with a few articles of clothing and half a can of condensed milk. Mr Willaughby brought the child to the police where it was cared for by a matron from the county jail until it was taken to the Faith Home for Children. It has been theorized that the child came from a group of “gypsies” who departed the area that night.
