No, I have not responded yet to your email, I have been a bit under the weather. As I stated in an early message off list to you, you will need to contact the Children's Aid Society (see Link below) in New York City, if this is where George was place. There were at least three orphanages in New York at time George was a small child.
There are at least two families with a George Radford born about the same time living in New York with a father dying when he was a very small child. The census records I sent to you were to show you the two families and let you decide which one you were going to research. The 55 Radford burials in the Greenwood Cemetery (link sent earlier) show at least two seperate Frederick and Louisa Radford families. The cemetery where some of the New York City Radfords seem to be buried also have a researcher that may be able to help to you.
Have you also looked into the other four George Radford families, five with your George, living in Dubuque county since 1856? The progenitors of these being William and Samuel Radford.
Because I do not live in Iowa I do not have the ability to do hands on research. What I sent to you (the census) records were for your use to determine which family George may have been born into. I do believe Frederick and Louisa Radford were his parents and that Frederick died before 1880.
