Just came through some older records. Found a letter dated 9-28-1915 from the Children's Home Society of WV. It says "Zula Duty born 3-6-1906 has this day committed her to the custody of Frank Patrick Murphy".
So she was 9 when she was adopted, have no idea how long she was in the Childrens Home Society.
Also the notes say that say she had 3 older sisters somewhere. Don't know if this will mean anything to your mother or not. Thanks again.
