My grandmother was born Ruby Grace Ellison I believe. Was adopted and name changed to Patricia Gunnell.

Her birth mother's first name was Eunice, lived in California for a while, and had 3 other sons. She died in the 1960s. I would love to find a connection with that branch of my family.

Not sure if this will be of any help 

I found a census but unsure if it is the correct one  "United States Census, 1940," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VRK5-3CJ : accessed 12 December 2015), Patricia Dian Gunnell in household of L C Gunnell, Ward 5, Independence, Independence City, Montgomery, Kansas, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 63-34, sheet 1B, family 24, NARA digital publication T627 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 2012), roll 1247.

If it is then you could search in the Kansas area
