My mother's name was Louella Pauline Cooper. She was born 14 Jul 1910 in Geary, Oklahoma. Her father was Albert Orvil Cooper and mother was Lula Enke. Both of her parents were born in Illinois. The children as far as I can piece together were Lillith B:1896 in Ill., Lucile H B: 1900 in Ill. Haldane B:1901 in Ill., Mack Richard B: 12 Oct 1905 in Geary, OK., mADGE iNEZ B: 22 Jun 1908 in Geary, Ok., My mom, their was another daughter born after my mom but have not been able to find any information on her.
My mom told me that the 4 girls were placed in The Illinois Soldiers Orphans' Home. She said their was a baby about 2 years younger than she was that died there. I did find the 1920 census listing my mom, and her sister Madge Inez as inmates of the home. Madge went to live with a family named Haight in Oregon, Illinois. She married John Claus Snapp in 1926.
