Wow I really don't know where to start lol, well my mother has since passed away so I'm very limited to the information that i do have. My mom was born in ottumwa Iowa in 1940, august 10
and she was in a orphanage in Iowa for some time, but she said her birth last name was Glaspell, and she had 2 other sisters. The girls was taken away from the birth mother and put into the orphanage in Iowa in the 40s. My mom was adopted out i think around age 4 or 5 and they changed her name to Beverly Ann Powers.
Thats all i can think of at the top of my head, any kind of information would be great, even a number to any orphanage that may still have old records or something. I feel the need to find out all i can since my mom never got to. Thanks for your time and help
