My great grandfather was adopted in Gratiot County, Michigan. The story my grandmother told me about her father was that he was given to the Gratiot County Poorhouse when he was born, by his parents, Frederick Minacka and Sarah Iantha Gingrey. I believe he was born around 1876. He was then adopted by John W. and Charlotte Smith of Wheeler, Michigan. I have no idea when, what age, he was adopted. When my great grandfather was adopted he was given the name Wesley Osman Smith, he was always called Otto. The Smiths also adopted a daughter named Jennie, again I have no idea when. I am looking for some sort of formal paperwork regarding the adoption. I would greatly appreciate any help from fellow researchers.
