I am looking for information on Helen Turp/ possibly Helen Turp Smith married to Irving Smith She had a child on June 5, 1892 who was named Nancy Elizabeth Smith. We believe that Helen Turp/Smith died about 3 years after she had Nancy. When Nancy was 7 years old she was adopted by Fred and Alida Bates (Alida's maiden name may have also been Turp.) Due to the fact that my great great grandmother was adopted we are having problems finding out information about her birth family. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
