Daniels from Fayette County, Illinois
I am looking for my grandmothers family. She was adopted by some people by the name of Daniels.
I have been told she was found by some gypsi's & the Daniels got her from them. I was told her adopted birth record is in St.Elmo, Illinois, Fayette County. I have written there & they seem to not beable to find it. I contacted Macon County, IL where she lived & died & they say they cannot find it either.
I know for fact, that she was in "The Girls Oppurnitunty Home In Decatur, Illinois, Macon County", this is where she met my grandfather he was the gardner there. They ran away together from "The Girls Oppurnitunty Home", & got married. Springfield, IL., State Archives & Decatur, IL., Macon County Clerks Office tells me they have no record of their marraige.
They raised 10 children in Macon, IL., Macon Co., where they bought & paid for a home.
My grandmother was Cherokee Indian.
Her name was Rosie Lee Daniels, b- _____prob. 1902 ?, she died April 29, 1952, Decatur, Illinois, Macon County. I cannot find a social security noumber for her either.
My grandfather's name was Albert Wesly Myers.
b- March 11, 1900, Bluemound, IL., Macon Co., S.S.# 329-01-5707A, He died, Jan. 30, 1971, Decatur, IL., Macon Co.; they are both bur. in Macon Cementery, Macon, IL., Macon Co.
I was told her birth mother's name is Mary J. Hughes, Dawes No. 17029....Miller Roll No. 14896.
My mother's cousion traced my grandmother Rosie back to Arkansa. Anyone knowing this information or a link to it please contact me. I would be forever greatful. Thank you !!!
