William Cahn/Conn of Kansas

Posted: 15 Nov 2007 8:15AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Conn, Cahn, Purkey, Allen, Moore, Lewis, Worsham, Amey, Amy
I have recently found that my great great grandmother was named Rosa/Rosalee/Rosa Lee/Rosalie last name unknown but she married a Moore in California and had at least 4 children by him.
1)Birdie born Dec 1880 who married William Conn/Cahn September 22, 1898 and had a son Adrian Stewart Conn (Ace/Acie/Asy) who later married Gladys Worsham of Nebraska, they had a daughter Dorothy Ruth Conn who was born in 1926. Ace went on to marry Irene Lewis in 1968.
Birdie then married George Edward Allen Dec 10, 1904 and they had 4 daughters. Juliette A. Allen June of 1905 who changed her name in adulthood to Ruth Juliette Allen who married John Garfield McLean. They had several children. Mildred Bernice Allen 1912 was the 2nd daughter who married a Purkey and had two sons. The 3rd daughter was Thelma Isabelle 1914 was the next daughter. She was institutionalized in 1929 and then later married a Purkey. The fourth daughter Georgia Lee Allen was born Oct 1917, she had a few marriages but only has one daughter Carole Lee Wood who married Moe Kennedy.
2) Charles Moore was born in 1882 and was living with Rosa Moore in the 1900 census (she can only be found on the census when you type in Basa or Bosh, but family has always called her Rosa. When you look at the handwriting on the census you can definitely see it could be Rosa.
3) I have a great aunt named Lucy Amy who was born to Rosa Moore in about 1884 in California. She reportedly married George Amy on Dec 10, 1904 at the same time her sister Birdie married George Allen.
Lucy and George had 4 children (Wendell, Elwin, Kathleen and Patsy/Patricia E.) Wendell and Elwin were institutionalized in 1930 and ended up on the same census as "inmates" of the institution as Thelma Isabell Allen.
4) The fourth child listed on the 1900 census with Rosa was Jenny Moore.
They are all listed as Indian and family history has alwasy said Rosa was Modoc. Rosa is listed as divorced and it also states she had a total of 9 children, 6 of which were living at that time.
We wonder if she were married before Mr. Moore and if so, who and who were the children. Or is she were with Moore the entire time, when and where did they get married and who is Mr. Moore.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
