Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 20, 1864
Iowa, USA
Death: May 10, 1941

In the 1900 Federal census, Cora Chinn (age 36, b. July 1863, single) was living in Dumont, Clear Creek County, Colorado with brother Raleigh W. Chinn (age 25, single) and sister Mary Chinn (age 20). Cora's occupation was given as "innkeeper."

Cora's father was born in Kentucky, her mother was born in Ohio. The census record states Raleigh and Mary's mother was born in Iowa, so they were half-siblings.

In the 1880 Federal census, H.J. Chinn (age 51), his wife Laura C. (age 30) and children Carlton R. (age 22), David T. (age 20), Michael P. (age 19), Cora R. (age 16), Rola W. (age 5), Jannette G. (age 3) and Mary A. (age 10 months) were living in Bolton, Cowley County, Kansas. H.J. Chinn was a farmer.

Childers family tree on ancestry.com states Elizabeth Ann Price Chinn died Feb 22, 1872 at age 36 in Muscatine, Iowa.

In the 1870 Federal census, Hezekiah Chinn (age 41), wife Elizabeth (age 34), and children Susan E (age 14), Carlton (age 12), David T (age 9), Michael (age 8), and Rachel C (age 6) were living in Muscatine, Iowa.

In the 1860 census, H.J. Chinn (age 31), wife Elizabeth A Chinn (age 24) and children Susan E (age 4), Carlton R (age 2) and David (age 9/12) were living in Muscatine, Iowa.

Iowa marriages on ancestry.com shows Hezekiah J Chinn and Elizabeth Ann Price married on April 15, 1855.


An uncle was Raleigh W Chinn. The attached news article apparently erred in stating she was the daughter of R.W. Chinn.
