Children of Guy Arthur Scofield and Dollie Sweet Mosier:
1. Gladys "Martha Jane" Scofield born October 9, 1919 in Indianapolis, Marion County, IN. After her mother's death, Martha Jane (which was her birth name) was given to a couple, to raise. They gave her the name Gladys. She eventually came back to her father to live, but not until she was about 10 years old or so, she is not listed with Guy and his new family in the 1930 census. My grandmother said that the woman who raised her was kind to her but asked that she called her mother, which my grandmother did not want to do, and this caused a conflict in the household. At 3 years old, she was basically an orphan. Her father did not visit her after taking her there to live. She never knew if there was a legal adoption or if it was just a temporary situation.
2. Delphord Frances Scofield born March 8, 1921 in Indianapolis, Marion County, IN.
