Married Wife Conners, Margaret M ( * 1886-12-22 + 1972-02-18 )
Event Date Place Description Sources
Marriage 1912-10-16   Marriage of Myers, Orange Freddie and Conners, Margaret  

home in 1918: Kansas City, MO
about 1924 - living in San Antonio, TX?
Home in 1930: Kansas City, Jackson, Missouri
->no children by 1930

I have a photograph of Fred Myers and Margaret Conners with 2 older children in 1924. They appear to be about 13 and 17. I believe Margaret was married before meeting Fred. These 2 children had left or were living with their dad by 1930.

Porter Matteson said about 1938 "living at 833 S Lorraine, Wichita, KS"
