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.
