Please see this photo of your grandfather. I was touched by the article and searched until I found you.

Baltimore City Nineteenth-Century Photos
Nellie and J. J. Hohmann
This is a great photo with an interesting story.
Nellie Hohmann was born 29 May 1908 to J.J. Hohmann and
Rebecca [possibly Simmons] Hohmann in Baltimore. Nellie's full name was Eleanor Rose Lydia Hiapatia Hohmann. She was raised by a neighbor, Lynn Fowler. At age six years she was placed in St. Anthony's Orphanage, probably shortly after this photo was made.
J. J. Hohmann, who was a good deal older than Nellie's mother, ended up in Nacozari de Garcia, Mexico and later in Boise, Idaho searching for gold.
Sheree Blackmer who submitted this photo is the grand daughter of Nellie Hohmann Atwell and she is attempting to reach any surviving family or those who may know more about her ancestry.
