Dyess,Deas,Deis,Deiss,Dice Families

I am searching for my mothers birth family. She was put up for adoption in 1916 in St. Louis, Missouri, at a Methodist Orphange. Her birth date was September 14, 1916. We assumed the spelling of her last name to be Dice(Verta Marie), but having never seen the spelling of her last name, perhaps it is another variation. Sound ex gives these names of variation for Dice. We seem to be at a dead end. Now we know our mother came from somewhere. We're hoping one of you families may know of, or heard a story of a baby girl being put up for adoption at birth, in the year 1916. She was born with both feet clubed. In the orphange they broke them, and reset her feet. She was adopted at approx. 5 years of age, by a Jess and Mary Beth Simon or Simons, of Brunswick, Missouri. Shortly, thereafter, Jess passed away. Mary Beth Simon then took our mother and relocated to Alva, Oklahoma, to be near her sister, Martha Ellen Ferguson. Upon the death of her adopted mother, Mary Beth, our mother was 8 years old, and went to live with her adopted
aunt and uncle, Andrew and Martha Ellen Ferguson. There she stayed until she was 18 years of age. She left, and never returned. Hoping someone can help us.
