Fidelia Nettie Ordaway 1868-1940

Fidelia was my great grandmother. Nellie was my grandmother who died young during the influenza pandemic in the early 1900's. Mom thought perhaps Fidelia had American Indian heritage but I can find nothing to substantiate it. Mom lived with her for a short time when my grandmother died. She later went to live with Hattie who raised her.
