My grandmother Alma (middle name - Bell from bible, but E was on divorce papers)Anderson was borned Feb 25, 1878 in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. The story has it that she and her siblings were placed in an orphanage when her parents split up. That she (my grandmother) was placed with a family and work on a farm. Later when older she worked at a hotel in Chicago, and that's were she met my grandfather AD Orem.
I would appreciate any information on her.
