Charles Ezra and Bella Matteson, adopted daughter Mary Frances

My grandmother was born in Illinois and raised in an orphanage (haven't discovered which one yet) and adopted by Charles Ezra Matteson and Birneta (called Bella) Matteson around 1920. They lived in South Bend, Indiana during the 1920 census but she wasn't in their home for that census. She said she was adopted around age 12, which is why I assume they got her around 1920. Grandma started out as Philomena Tamberino but somewhere along the line her name became Mary Frances, I suppose when the Mattesons adopted her. I wonder if anyone has any knowledge of any of the Mattesons or their adopted daughter. I would give anything to find which orphanage they got her from.
