    The twins rode the Orphan Train from New York to Kansas in September 1911 and grew up out West. They were featured in "They Rode the Orphan Trains" by Andrea Warren and now there is a new historical fiction novel about them. Nettie & Nellie Crook: Orphan Train Sisters, by E.F.

Twin sisters Nettie and Nellie Crook are taken away from their disfunctional parents in 1910 when they are only five years old, and placed in an orphanage--at six they are put on the orphan train by the Children's Aid Society and moved from New York City to Kansas, ending up in a household where they are treated more as servants than children.
