Family Tree

Classification: Query
Surnames: Litzenberg, Hoover, Cockeril
Does anyone know the best way to show the multiple names and families for my dad in a family tree?

I believe my dad was born Frank Cockeril and placed in an orphanage in Scioto County, Ohio. He was then transferred to the Children's Home Society of Ohio in Columbus.

In 1912 he was adopted by Albert J. and Harriet (or Ruth) Hoover who changed his name to Franklin James Hoover. Unfortunately, they returned my dad to the home in 1915.

Later in 1915 he was taken to live with Abraham F. and Eldora Sausser Litzenberg who referred to him as James Franklin Litzenberg and this is the name which he carried through life although the Litzenberg's from what I can determine never officially adopted him.

I want to make all of the name changes for dad clear so if I can not solve all of the mysteries of his childhood one of my ancestors will more easily be able to follow what happened.

Thanks

Dora
