Agans family research

Does anyne know about Melvin Agans from Albany, NY? He was my grandfather. There seems to be a connection with the Joseph Wemett name. At the Albany Memorial Cemetary, I saw my great grandmother's head stone and her name was Etta Mae Wemett. The story goes that when my grandfather was a child, his mother was very sick. On her death bed, she asked a friend to care for her son. The friend agreed, but my grandfather had to take their name, Agans. Apparently, originally his last name was Davis. At some time my grandfather spent time in an orphanage, but it burnt down with all the records. Grandpa married Arletta Arris in 1909 and they continued to live in Albany, NY until their deaths. I have realatives still living in Albany and my immediate family live in PA. Can anyone make a connection?
