Subject: Looking for biological great grandfather

I’m looking to find any information on my grandmother Barbara Loucks biological father. Both she and her parents are deceased and while I know a little bit about her mother, her paternity is unknown.
My now deceased grandmother was adopted at birth in 1933 and didn’t learn she was adopted until the 1990s. She wanted very much to find her biological parents but never did.
She was born in or close to Petoskey Michigan on January 13, 1933 and her biological mother may have been named Ellen Doran.
Her biological mother is known to be deceased.
“Ellen” was born about 1910, unmarried and while details about her are scarce, she was likely of Irish heritage. I also know she died prior to the late 1990s.
Nothing is known about the father though my DNA results suggest he may have been of Mediterranean or Spanish heritage. This is speculation but it’s based on my best estimate.
I know it’s unlikely that anyone will recognize this information but if someone does, please contact me. Any bit helps.
