In Feb of 1906 Ella Ricken gave up her daughter Louise Ricken for adoption in Gage Co, Nebr. She had a relationship with her daughter throughout life. I would like to find Ella's family for sure. Censuses are confusing, as there are a lot of German families in the area, and more than one Ella Ricken, which could have been a maiden or married name. Louise was adopted and given the name Abigail Louise McIntyre.
