My grandmother Mary Ellen Williams Oakes was born abt 1913-July 22. Family story is that she was found in a train station in Illinois and adopted by George Washington & Katherine Williams of Portsmouth, Ohio. I have found records that say she was born at home, in Missouri and in Davenport Iowa. I have a strong feeling she was the daughter of George Washington Williams and the 13 year old wage earning servant that lived in the home during the 1910 census, Josie Violet Jones, either by design or accident. G.W and Katherine had no other children.
