My grandfather John was born February 11, 1912 (maybe 1910 or 1911 also)to Frank and Margaret (Bartline) Smith in Pella, Shawano, Wisconsin. We have been told that his mother passed away and the children lived with their father until they were taken away from him and placed into St. Joseph's orphanage, his foster mother's name is/was Elizabeth (John)Calaway. I know he has a birth brother named George Smith b. 1889, 2 sisters Flora May b. 11/28/1876 and Mary b. 4/17/1896. We were told his birth records were destroyed in a fire. I am hoping someone can assist me.

Greetings from Shawano County,

John's parents were married in Shawano County on July 2, 1895. They lived in the Pella twp up through the 1910 U.S. Federal Census. I have not been able to locate them on the 1920 census yet. He had a brother Frank who used the Smith name and lived in the Birnamwood area. Members of the family seem to alternate between Smith and Schmidt.
