Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for George Washington COONROD

Residences & events:

6/23/1880 Lincoln Twp, Crawford Co, KS. The census taker found George and the family living with is aged parents, probably to help brother Francis care for them as well as working the farm. George was 29 years old, Yarra was 22. They had 3 small children, Dollie, 6, Jennie, 4, and Charles, 1.

6/18/1900 Twp 22, Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory. By that year George's parents had died and the family moved on. George was then 49 years of age, married for 27 years to Yarra, 42, who had birthed 13 children but only 11 still survived. The family had grown and still in the house were Charles, 21, Martha, 19, Mary 16, Mate, 15, Emma, 13, Jeff, 11, Nellie, 8, Lizzie, 6, George H, 4, and Nannie, 1.

1/22/1920 Collinsville, Tulsa Co, OK. George at 68 was a public laborer at census time. Yartilda was 62 and only Nannie P, 20, was still at home.

4/3/1930 Same place but he was living with widowed daughter Mary Jordan, 47, at census time. He was 78 and widowed himself. They lived alone.

Some family listings have George's death date as 7/24/1873 but since he was in later census records that obviously is incorrect.
