Default looking for info on great-grandmother

Her married name was Millie Robinson. She lived most of her life in Connellsville, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. We know she was in some part Native American (I can remember her hair flowing down to her ankles.) I was told by my Grandmother (her daughter) that she was born in Chicago, but the only census records I have found place her in Pennsylvania in the home of Walter and Irene Sutton as a child. She was born Millie (or Mildred) Calloway.

Cook County (encompassing Chicago) has the best birth (and death) records for that timeframe that I have seen...

EDIT: There are only two records of a Millie or Mildred Calloway born in Chicago during that searchable time, both born too late in 1913 and 1915...

Default Thank You

Thanks for checking the records for me, though the results are a little disappointing. She appears to sprung up from a cabbage patch without parents. : )

You should be aware of other search areas; The census can be unreliable in some forms. Ironically, if raised on a Native American reservation, the detail provided can rival almost any other U.S. source (with yearly censuses, and parentage being shown in many cases). Have you tried FamilySearch.org?
