I am trying to find my 1st cousin who was born about Sep 1929. She was born in Iowa to Vera Jordan. Vera died in 1932 leaving Gertrude at a young age. At the time of Vera's death, she and Gertrude were living with Charles and Opal Wenman in Iowa City, IA. By 1940, she is no longer living with them. She may also call herself Betty. So between the years of Feb 1932 and the 1940 census, Gertrude was given away or to an orphanage. None of our family knew the father of Gertrude and Vera didn't marry him. Vera died an untimely death & at first report it was poisoning. If anyone has any information on Gertrude, please let me know. In old family records, the name of Schott is mentioned as the married name of Gertrude.
