Notes:



parents from another McCaskey descendent.

--
The Douglas Co MO birth register has her as Nelly Thompkins in the entry for daughter Stella.

--
Her death certificate shows she died in Fresno CA. Her mother's maiden name is given as Mallonee.

--
The 1930 census has a Nellie McCaskey in Pasadena CA. She was born in 1878 in MN, parents in Austria and Germany. She has a daughter Eugenia born 1912 in UT.

--
Another descendant sends:
After Lewis died, she married a man with the surname Jar. They moved to W Plains MO. She divorced him and moved to Hutchinson KS about 1920.

--
That doesn't agree with the census entries below. I can't find any entry for her under the name Jar
anywhere.

A couple of her sons are in Hutchinson, Reno Co KS on the 1930 census, but I don't see her there.
They appear to have moved to KS about 1927.
Son Roy is in San Luis Obispo, Morro Co CA.

Nellie attended school within the year.
