Grandmother Ellen Campbell

Posted: 1121394532000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Campbell, Lake
My Grandmother kept everything a secret from her children and grandchildren and now has passed away. Thanks to Ancestry.com I have found a few things out but not enough. I was told that her father was killed in a fire when she was very young and that her mother couldn't care for all the children so they were put in an orphanage in North Dakota somewhere I think near Fargo. We know that there were siblings, and my grandmothers birthdate was 1911, july 31. At the age of 18 she waws working as a servant for a farmer and their family. We believe that she had a baby of her own at a very young age and put it up for adoption at the Florence Createn home in Fargo (not sure of the spelling) We also have a paper that says that she at one time went by the name of Ellen Lake so she has an alias but with SS it is Ellen Anderson her married name maiden name being Campbell. If anybody can help me and my family with this it would be great it doesn't matter if you find something out or if you know something that isn't good we just want to know. Thanks a bunch Wanda
