Freidel Family Genealogy Forum
My grandfather was born in New York City on 14 Aug, 1886 however, other sources list birth as early as 1883. He was adopted by Elizabeth (Betsy) Walker in Kansas from an Orphan Train. She adopted my grandfather between 1890 and 1895 in Kansas, and changed his name to Ralph Walker. His name before adoption is unknown but in the 1895 census she had a son named Ralph Fedral, 5 years later he was listed as Rulolf Walker, and 5 years later as Ralph Walker. I believe that his birth name may have been Rulolf Fedral or given a census taker that couldn't spell, it could be Rudolph Freidel or Friedel. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
