My husbands grandmother,Stella, was adopted around 1898-1900 from a WV orphanage she thought was in Parkersburg, WV. She was born in 1892 and adopted by Adolphus & Eliza Bent. They lived in Gilmer Co., then moved back to Ohio. Eliza claimed she tried to adopt Stella's sisters but when she inquired about them, told Stella the Orphanage burned and no records could be found of her sisters. I am having trouble with this...a legal adoption papers are often in the estate records but none have been found...any ideas???
