In the 1910 Joplin, Jasper Co, MO census, Ella Obetz was 18 yr. old (b. abt 1892 in MO).She was listed as the adopted dau. of David E. & Chrissie Harvey.
She was also listed as married.I assume that would mean her husband's last name was Obetz, rather than her last name when she was adopted.Is that correct?If so, do you know her last name when she was adopted, and do you have the name of her Obetz husband?
Also, you said you thought her adoption might have happened in OK.One of her Harvey sisters was born in OK in 1894, when Ella was 2 yr. old.Was that when Ella was adopted?
Because your post was from 13 yr. ago, I'm afraid you might never read this post.I would appreciate hearing from anyone else who might have knowledge about Ella Obetz.
