It has long been told in our family that my grandmother was on of the two children remaining in Minnie Deans care at the time of her arrest. I would like to know more about this as I would like to try and trace my heritage if that would be possiblw. When my grandmother died they had to go through her school records to validate who she was as she had no birth certificate. What happened to the children in Minnie Deans care at the time of her arrest? Where did they go? And who would have this information. Regards Sandy Robertson
