Perhaps so.  Joel Chandler Harris, however, would have written, in fact did write, 'spectin.  He was a pretty faithful recorder of southern/Black dialect speech.

It's not expectin.   It's 'spectin.

It pays to do a Google image search.  I've found a few photos of ancestors that way.

Is this the index you are referring to?

Presumably, the settlement books for those earlier years have not been digitized.  Perhaps they no longer exist.  But, any rate, the entry for Albert Wallace says "no settlements."

I ran into this interesting short documentary on 'orphan trains' while looking for something else.  There are a few photos and records available on line.

More than 4,000 have been recorded at Find-A-Grave but only 41% photographed.

"it would not surprise me if his father was from Mass."

No, it wouldn't surprise me, either.  I have a lot of Maine ancestors and there was a good bit of movement from Massachusetts to Maine and vice versa.

Have you seen this?  Not that it sheds any light on Theo.

I don't have time to look right now, but I notice that there is a small cluster of people named Boardman Knox in Massachusetts.  It might be worth poking around there if you haven't already done so.

There's a family tree here:

https://www.familysearch.org/tree/pedigree/landscape/LC7J-Q77

It does not identify the parents of Eliza Brindle but it looks she might have been a cousin given that Malachi's mother was a Brindle from Pennsylvania.  She had several brothers.
