I am looking for information around the adoption of my grandmother Dawn Seymour (birth certificate Marie Agnus Ashley) to Robert Conrad Seymour (1876-1950).
We know that nana was unofficially adopted at birth by Robert Conrad/Seymour, and then later official adopted. On her birth certificate her father is not named. It is believed that Marie Agnus (known as Dawn - my grandmother) may have been fathered by either Robert himself, or another member of the Conrad/Seymour family due the 'unofficial' adoption. It is our understanding that she was taken home from the hospital by Robert Conrad/Seymour and Bertha Blanche Conrad/Seymour. Nana's birth mother was Elaine Fanny Ashley. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks
