Probably not related but who knows.
I have an adopted great aunt whos adopted name was Ruth Hagelshaw. I have a picture of her and her parents John and Emma Hagleshaw. On the back it states:
"Ruth, adopted fr Lepkie, German decent at age 4 (1915 about)"
The Hagelshaw family lived in Battle Creek MI and were German descendants.
I understood she was adopted from Germany but that may be wrong.
Do you know the time of the father's death to see if this may have been the parent of Ruth?
