Wow, we are definitely related. In fact, my first name is Thoma which is the maiden name of my great-grandmother. I don't have all of the details you're looking for, but I can tell you that Emma who died in 1967 was my great-aunt. I am emailing this to my mother and her sister, both Kanises who still live in Little Rock, to get the information you're looking for.
I'll get back to you with the information you're looking for.
