Sylvanus Collett ... Marion Collett

Surnames: Collett, Merrill
My great-grandfather, Marion Collett, was allegedly the son of Sylvanus Collett, Cache Valley, UT I believe he grew up in this home but have strong reasons to believe he may have been adopted or fostered -- does any one know if this is possible. His mother was listed as Lodema Merrill but I do not think he was really her son. For one thing, he was illiterate and this seems odd for this prominent family. He looks nothing like them and he was born at sea according to his death cert. He was also five years younger than the last child born to Lodema and she was in her 40s when he was born.
