Dear Jacquie: Sorry to take so long to reply. I only rarely peek at this website and only just did for the second time this year. Much better to email me directly at

Yes, we are related, distantly. Clara Champlin was my grandfather's 8th cousin. I descend from the immigrant Jeffrey Champlin's eldest son (Jeffrey Jr.) while Clara descends from his second son (William).

Margaret was put up for adoption for reasons unknown to me. Since you say that Joseph and Annie divorced, it may be that Joseph believed that his second daughter was fathered by someone other than him? Margaret was adopted by a Swedish family surnamed Orn and her name was changed to Inez Marguerite Orn.

Please email me so we continue this discussion more easily.
