Another cousin had this info "Annie Bradt went back to the home around 1895 she removed Dora and Jesse from the home and left Lydia there to be adopted ,then she must have died around 1900 because in 1900 Jesse and Dora are living with relatives. Lydia's father died in nov 1889 and Lydia was born aug 1890 . So he most likley didnt know about Lydia at all. There was another sister born 1886 and died 1888 her name was Carrie Elizabeth mathias. Annie and William (Henry) where married 17 Sept 1883."
