My g-grandmother always said she was an only child. Her name was Lola Maria, b. 28 Feb 1869 in Saginaw MI. Her mother (on birth certificate) is Mary Hoard & father Ramson Hoard (his first name of John not shown). I believe that by 1880 they were either separated or divorced, and then Mary G. just disappears.
Any info you can give will be greatly appreciated!JoAnn
