Wondered if she was named after her mothers sister but still nothing under either Delia/Della Sophia.
Certainly illusive.

All the children in the Oates and Howard families have two given names. I think Della is her second given name but one would think Della should show up somewhere.

The Lansing State Journal clipping is particularly interesting because I did not know of another child born into the Oates family. I have a 5 yr gap between Marguerite Agnes(1903) and Waldo Frank(1908). Is it possible to find out who the child was? A kidnapping must of made the news.

The article refers to 4 sisters and 3 brothers - I presume the sisters were Agnes Margaret, Della, Madeline Howard and Margaret J (Jane) plus Raymond J, Waldo and Louis.

Was it a Howard child who was kidnapped. - Neil Howard didn't marry Maude until 1913 ?
Although 1910 census says Maude Oates had 5 children and 4 survive ?

It was an Oates child. Maybe a son named Willie/William

Presume that's because you saw this entry ? Iosco County, Michigan Glass Negatives, 1892-1905: East Tawas - Oates, Wm - Description: baby - Order Number: 2367
Description:    INDEX TO GLASS NEGATIVES EAST TAWAS MICHIGAN: 1892-1905
Order Number:   Oates, Wm

Perhaps the library can help out ?
