Episode description: A Kansas City woman wants to find her parents, but the only clue she has is a medallion of the Virgin Mary that was attached to her diaper when she was presented for adoption from a Home for Unwed Mothers. Along the Missouri River in Omaha, archaeologists dig into an encampment from the "Long Expedition" of 1819, which is considered the first exploration expedition to be accompanied by scientists. And a woman in New Jersey shows the portrait she believes is a lost masterpiece by one of America's greatest illustrators and artists, Howard Chandler Christy. The subject is purportedly Evelyn Nesbit, the actress and model who came to fame in 1906 when her husband killed a famous architect accused of "taking advantage" of her. [cc]
