I know this is a long shot but I have discovered that my Great Grandfather was adopted/taken. His given name was Bruce Edgar Alter, he was adopted/taken in by Frank Edgar Alter and his wife Laura L. Marshall. Bruce was born in Saint Paul, MN in 1901. I have no idea what his birth name was when he was born or how he arrived in Johnstown, Cambria, PA to be raised by Frank and Laura. Laura passed away in 1905 and it was in her will that she did not say she left her son anything but Bruce E Alter the boy they took in and cared for.
I am looking for anyone that has information on the Frank Alter or Laura Marshall lines that might know the history of how Bruce came to be raised by them.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
