Musa's obit & looking for mother of child named Mercedes Merriam

Thanks Bill,

You have come to the rescue before with this family and their mysteries.

Perhaps you can answer this question for me.

WHICH OFFICE WOULD i WRITE TO TO ASK ABOUT GUARDIANSHIP PAPERS FOR A CHILD UNDER THE AGE OF 10?
The years would be btw 1905 and 1910.

I am going to write for a birth certificate for Mercedes Merriam to see if one is registered in Toledo, but am not certain just where she was born if she is not child of Musa.

One elderly family member tells me Myrtle McGowin [half-sister of Musa] had a child with John Blackman abt 1905 and the childs name was Hermaine...

but family members son tells me Hermaine is from another unrelated family...

and now I am thinking that child could have been Mercedes Merriam whose mother Myrtle died about 1908.......

a child Musa either adopted or had guardianship for... Mercedes later lived with her grandmother and she died about 1929.....

Mercedes was born about the same time the child of Myrtle was born and is the same sex.....

Thanks for your previous help
Ann
