Looking for info on the birth family of Myrtle Delmer Minnich, born 20 Aug 1886 in Nebraska, and adopted between 1886 and 1894 by Martin and Lucinda C. Minnich. We believe the adoption took place in or near Hastings or Beatrice and that her birth family's name could have been Eversole, Ebersole or Ebersol.
Myrtle lived with her adoptive family in Scott County, KS and was married twice (Harkness and Crozier), but members of her birth family or their representatives were able to locate and contact her in the 1940’s regarding settlement of an estate. Myrtle declined to re-establish contact and subsequently disposed of mementos she may have had of her birth family. She passed away in 1971, having never discussed details with her children or grandchildren.
