Seeking Heirs From Canada To California

The Flint Journal (Flint, Michigan) published the following information:

"Mrs. James Scott of Galt, Ont., is seeking information relative to a half sister, Anna McGee, who was adopted by a family named Brown of Clio, 22 years ago, the girl then being 2 years old.  A half brother was adopted by a farmer in that neighborhood about the same time, but when 14 years old he ran away and returned to Canada.  A brother of Mrs. Scott recently died in California [probably Robert T. Smale], leaving some property, and an effort is being made to locate all the heirs." [Flint Journal, Published 1900-10-13, Page 4]
