Okay, this may be a long shot. If you look at www.findagrave.org, and go to the cemetery where Florence is buried, and look for all Westcotts.

There is a Beatrice LaFountain Westcott, born 1899. If you look at the Wisconsin death index at www.familysearch.org
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/V8SN-67G
It says that Beatrice's middle name was "Dathne"

So, what do you think of this 1900 census record for Marinette County, with children Flossy and Dafine?

The 1905 census has the children living with grandparents, with fits in with the orphan story

I am not related to the Wescot family, however am in this area nearly every week and am familiar with the family names in the county, so many are buried at that cemetery in Pensaukee. Also, not sure if you are in or familiar with the area, but I am somewhat and know there is a lake there named Wescott, so more than likely it was named after this family! I find that pretty cool! Census info may confirm address of and possibly lead you to land purchases and precise locations where the families lived and all!
Enjoy the search!
