**********
This family, and relationships, are difficult to trace. It appears that Irene's mother Zina married several times, and the daughter's last name readily changed with each marriage. What became of George and John, I cannot find. Irene died young, and may have been the mother of Hazel, who was then raised by her grandmother, Zina, and also fell into the surname 'trap'.
According to an online tree, Rozina was the daughter of George Cockayne and Rhoda Jenkins, and was born in Utah, but I do not find documentation for that (1900 census shows her with mother only, and called "Rose Z. Jenkins"). Also called Rose Ina.
