I am glad to hear from you. I did not know the Ellen was adopted. My father in law was adopted and was the child of Karen Beata Lund and a man named Jesse Warner Hoopes. Karen was the child of Anders Lund and Ellen Gronberg. He was adopted by a widow with 10 children in Logan. He went to the door of her home as an adult to meet her and had the door closed in his face. His adoptive family was Eliza Jane Clements and Charles Williams. Charles died before he was adopted. From what we heard from the midwife Jesse Warner Hoopes family thought they were of higher social class than the Lunds.
I live very near Rockport MA. I am about 30 miles north in a town called Bradford.
Have you checked her death certificate? Do you know where she was adopted?
Do you know if there are any living descendants of Karen?
She married Andrew Anderson. If there is anything I could check in Rockport I would be glad to.
