My Gr Grandma Melba's dad was said to be born 1883 and not well taken care of my his real parents. The story goes like this, A man named Doc McCall and his wife came into town one day and seen a boy with no clothes on playing in a mud puddle and he asked some towns ppl "Who's baby is this?" a reply was "Your's if you want him." So Doc and his wife took the boy home with them and supposedly went back to get Samuel's sister, whose name is believed to be Minnie, a little later. Doc and his wife raised them but had them keep their real names. I dont know how much of this story is true but I really hope I can find more information on this.
