My grandfather Dawson Tapley was born on June 12, 1907 in Blaine or Robinson, Maine. His mother Nettie Tapley died at childbirth. Nettie was married to Webster Tapley. Webster Tapley already had several children and couldn't take care of a new baby by himself. He gave the baby (Dawson Tapley) up for adoption. I believe his cousin or uncle, Otha Dawson Noble adopted him, and he became known as Dawson E Noble. Webster Tapley later remarried and I think he had more children.
Dawson Tapley Noble had a daughter Nettie, named after Nettie Tapley. Nettie Noble Dodge is my mother.
Dawson Tapley had a sister Mildred Tapley. He talked about Edgar and Mildred Tapley, who had a son Royce Tapley and another son Webster Tapley. They also had twin daughters; Marilyn and Carolyn. Carolyn died as baby in 1938.
