On July 17, 1912, four year old Harry Dishman arrived in Manchester, Iowa aboard the orphan train. Clara Comstock was the Children's Aid Society agent. Harry was assigned to the Frank Assmus family but within a month Mrs. Assmus was ill and not able to care for Harry. He was than placed with Ruth Davey of Earlville, Iowa.
