Orphan Train Rider Medallion

Though this item doesn't reside in my house, I treasure it just the same. The picture is of the tombstone of William Sydney Emay, my great-grandfather. The medallion on the stone was placed there by his descendants at a special ceremony on June 15, 2001 and identifies William as an orphan train rider in 1861.
