Adopted Beacham Twins

In Reply to: Beacham's Adopted out after Mother's Death by Linda Lowe of 404

My Great Grandfather was Orvel Beacham who was a twin and both were adopted by the Beacham family. His twin's name was Oscar. Both were born in 1908. I believe they were born in Iowa, but I'm not positive, I know that they did live there at some time. Orvel died in 1979 and his last place of residence was Long Beach, Ca. He married Avis whose last name I don't know. Avis was born in 1910 and died in 1987. My dad was told that the twins were originally born to Jane Haxton (not positive on exact name though) who adopted out nine of thirteen children (again the number of children is not certain). I'm looking for anyone who has any info that might help me in my search.
