Is it possible that if Jessie had to send to IL for information, she has a delayed birth certificate filed in the county? I know some of my kin had delayed birth certificates, but they also had a certified letter in order to be able to vote, so the local courthouse had some vital info even though it wasn't an actual birth certificate.
I'm confused. Laura is indicated as having been born in both NY and IL? Or are they indicating she was in the Foundling Hospital in NY and came on an orphan train to Kankakee Co., IL?
