    • According to Mabel's family, her mother died when Mabel was an infant. Mabel was born in Girard, Kansas. We do not know if Mabel had the same mother as Eva, Leo, Violet.
    Notes 
    • From the land purchases that Joseph made I know that he was married about 1880 to a Martha Ann, she may be the mother of several of the children.

      Marriage record at the Los Angeles County Vital Statistics office: Catherine I. Sweetman and Leo Keithley were married 2 Nov. 1907. His father is listed as J. H. Keithley of WI. His mother is Martha Conn of NE. His age is listed as 22yrs. born in Illinois and he was a baker. They were married by a Pres. Clergyman. It is in Book #92 page 39 of the marriage records.

      On Violet’s birth & death certificate it indicates that her mother’s maiden name was Jester.

      On Violet’s birth certificate and according to the 1900 Census Eva, Leo and Violet's father was born in WI and mother in OH. In the 1920 census Violet reported that her mother was from Ireland.

      On Mabel’s marriage record it lists her mother as Eoven.

      Other last names I’ve seen suggested: Jester McCoon Poren or Patton. I believe that Patton was an uncle’s name who they may have lived with and McCoon is probably a misspelling of Conn.

    • I know that Joseph's first wife's name was Martha Ann.
      On the marriage license it indicates Martha was Miss Martha Conn. Then on Violet's birth certificate it looks like the person filling the form out was saying that Martha's maiden name was Jester.
      Marriage records for Brown, Ohio 1818-1939. There was a Martha A. Jester who married a William Conn in Brown, Ohio. Problem is the marriage date is June 25, 1836.
