I have the 1900 & 1910 Cencus. I am confused about after this and who Eric real mother was. There are 4 possibilitys here. There are some deep dark family secrets. Eric & his wife Hattire were first cousins. I knew this but a few other lies were told. I discovered some not so pretty things. So, I am desperate to find out what happened to Orrin &n Alma.
You see my grandfather insisted he was an only child. He & his wife both knew it was a lie.
I was told on more than one ocassion to leave well enough alone because if I kept snooping I wouldn't be happy with the results. Well they are deceased and I still want the truth.
I heard mention of Alma 1 time but never knew who she was.
