We haven't considered DNA testing and this is actually a very intriguing idea. Yes we've always thought it strange that my grandmother was adopted in to a family with three much older children already - 23 (could this person have been her father we're wondering?), 17 and 15 when she was adopted.  Thanks so much for suggesting such an obvious idea which we haven't thought about!

Are you suggesting the 23 year old may have been the baby's FATHER? But no sign of "Dudley" in that family? 
Surely if the (possible) father's family adopted, the "odd" name would be indicating the MOTHER..... or am I losing my marbles??
