A Question and More Info

Do you know the name of the prosecutor who adopted her? According to the 1900 census, which can be found at http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html#p=home, Nellie Meeks, born Sep 1887, was living with John and Mary C. Page. They were in Union Township, Sullivan County. John was a farmer. At first I figured these were her maternal grandparents, since she is given as their granddaughter, but perhaps these could be the people who adopted her.

According to the Ancestry.com database "Missouri Marriage Records, 1805-2002", Nellie married Albert Spray 6 Jan 1904 in Milan, Sullivan county. His father and her guardians are listed as being present.

According to this same database, Hattie Spray married Wayne Jones 24 Nov 1919, also in Milan. On the 1910 census, Hattie, age 5, was living with her paternal grandparents. Her father, who is listed as widowed, was living with one of his brothers. They were all in Sullivan County.
