My grandfather was born a Feldt and was adopted by a Long family after his mother & some siblings died from botulism. He was born 7/11/1899 and was adopted by the Long's 1900-1901,and lived in Iowa. I believe he was born in Illinois but we can find nothing about the death of his mother & siblings. There was an older brother and a sister Rose. Rose was also given up for adoption as their father was unable to care for them. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
