Not sure what in particular you need, her birth record for that date, indicates mother was Bessie Lakes (with Lakes being transcribed wrong and should be Locker). Lorena is in 1920 census with her parents in Woodford County, her father was Tevis Dunn. (1920 Census is transcribed wrong and shows Ferris).
