oak dining table legs

I have an old oak dining table without the legs. It is about 45" square and has the apron attached to the bottom. The table did NOT have a pedestal center, but had 4 (actually 5, including a center one for support when several leaves are added) corner legs. I can get new legs from several sources - Adams, Matthew Burak, etc. - but the question is how to attach them. They were NOT attached to the apron - the existing apron has rounded corner pieces, like molding, at each corner. There are no screw holes on the inside of the apron or corner pieces to indicate that the legs were ever attached there.

There ARE some screw holes on the underside of the tabletop that perhaps indicate that the legs were attached to a second apron located just inside the fancy outer apron. Does anyone have any ideas or experience with something like this?

Thanks.

Doug
