Dorothy Helen Halliwell's original birth certificate was filed in Barberton, Summit Co., Ohio as Dorothy Helen HALLWICK, born 8 August 1916 at Johnson's Corners. Her grandmother, Mary "Elizabeth" Halliwell, initiated a Correction Affidavit, which changed her surname spelling to HALLIWELL and her birth date to 7 August 1916. This said affidavit also stated that "Father and mother are both deceased and I raised Dorothy from two years of age." The author of this said sketch believes that Dorothy "Helen" was raised in the George B. Halliwell home from the age of TWELVE.

Dorothy was reared by her paternal grandparents--George B. Halliwell and Mary "Elizabeth" Cramer and was in the said family's care, at age twelve, as depicted on the 1930 US Census for Seville Village, Medina County, Ohio.
