Do You Have any Info on Orphant Annie, or want to learn more?
As a researcher, I am constantly looking for information about the person who inspired the Little Orphant Annie character of Riley's poem - Mary Alice Smith Gray. I am also looking to discover more about her family, and trying to fill in the holes of what happened to her family members.
I am also looking for some information about Mary Alice Smith's relationship with Riley, and the actual writing of the poem itself.
I am also trying to draw any connections that I can between the Orphant Annie poem, and the Orphan Annie comic strip, the movies, the radio show, and the broadway play.
I am on Facebook, Pineterest, Ancestry.com and My Heritage.com - looking for info as well as several genealogy message boards. Any help- or insight someone can provide - would be greatly appreciated!
