I have a couple issues with the Tier/Adams Family and hope you might have a clue. #1 My Grandfather has a brother our family had never known of. In the 1900 Census, Caroline Adams says she had 3 live births- with only 2 listed with her in the Census; Joseph Daniel Adams b. 1892 = and E.(Elizabeth) Bertha Adams b. 1890-91. The other child had either to have been born out of wedlock or farmed out and raised by others be that family/ or adopted out. I can't seem to find a birth certificate of any kind on another male child born to Caroline. I KNOW he did exist as my cousin a contemporary mentioned that he came into the family store asking for my grandfather, and stating he was his brother. My cousins' Dad asked the man if he could assist him. This occurred when we were young girls, maybe in the 50's. My cousin and her brother overheard their Dad and Mom talking over the day with this news, SHOCK.
Another PUZZLE is with E. Bertha Adams She married Steven R. Brown, July 19, 1916, Franklin Co., Ohio-- his parents; Charles A. Brown & June Miller-- Steven b. 1889. They divorced and Bertha went back to her maiden name Adams. She again married June 17, 1920, Logan Ohio. This time to Frank Boesch b. abt. 1885; his parents Louis Boesch & Mary Rupf.
Okay now the Puzzle-- Bertha gave birth to one child Vorinda V. Adams as she was known through life b. Feb. 21, 1912--d.Feb.11, 1990. I've not found her father. Vorinda married Earmel I. Kirk in 1939 b. July 29, 1907--d. Dec.30, 1988 They both died = in Kentucky. See what I mean a real puzzle??
