Comments on Original Documents

This card shows the name incorrectly as "Conners," but the proper form of the name is "Conner." His grandson has indicated that George Conner's biological father was Wah-kon-tah shinka and mother was Le-a-tsa, both of whom were killed when he was five years old. William Conner and Adeline Newman-Conner were George's foster parents, though an Osage relative named Margaret "Maggie" Lawrence also raised him.
