I found other post looking for this mother, by the name of Vera Dodson, Dotson, and Dawson. I would try to find court papers on the adoption, to make sure what the mother`s name actually was.
The adopted father, George Masner.was a bit of a mystery himself. It looks like after the adoption, he left for New Mexico, and married 2 more times, before he died in 1944.
On the 1930 census Alice is showing to be age 53, and a widow, with her 3 yr old son. I was not able to find her after this. Alice and George were married for a long time, before George left. Makes you wonder, what happened after the adoption.

This was the only info I could pull up on this birth. It appears that this was the only child Alice and George Masner had. George did have a stepson, in 1930 in New Mexico, with his second wife.
