Birth*19 September 1877Hazel Conger was born on 19 September 1877 in Oneida, Knox County, Illinois.2,1,3
(Daughter) Relocation12 April 1878 Shortly after Hazel's birth, her father's health began to fail. Thinking that a change in climate might help, her parents moved their family to New Mexico in 1877. Her sister Alice, who was 7 years old, wrote later that she had only a dim recollection of the long journey. Her brother Roy was 4, Elizabeth 2, and Hazel was an infant. Their half-brother, Arthur, and his family made the trip also. Arthur was 26, his wife Ella was 21, and their young daughter Lucy was 3.

At that time, Trinidad, Colorado was the end of the railroad line and the family made the remainder of the trip to New Mexico on the Santa Fe Trail by stagecoach. It was a tiring and dusty trip, and would have been especially so for the young children. His father and Arthur invested together in the purchase of what was commonly known then as a "Post Traders" store at Fort Union, Mora County, New Mexico. Crayton was appointed as the post trader and they bought the Sutler's store on 12 April 1878.4,5,6
(Daughter) Census 190015 June 1900Hazel appeared on the 1900 census taken on 15 June 1900 in the household of her mother at 565 6th Street, Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa. She was 22 years of age and worked as a bill clerk.3
(Participant) Family Photo19 January 1903 On 19 Jan 1903 several photos of the extended Heaton family were taken at a family gathering, probably at William and Lucy Heaton's home in Des Moines, Iowa. Multiple shots of primarily the same individuals in different groupings are spread across the country among the Heaton descendants.7
Marriage*6 May 1908She married Roy Henry Heaton, son of Henry C. Heaton and Mary Ann Marker, on 6 May 1908.2,1,8
Census 1910*15 April 1910Hazel and Roy Henry Heaton appeared on the 1910 census taken on 15 April 1910 in Dalhart, Dallam County, Texas. Roy was 34 years of age and worked "on his own account" as an engineer in an auto shop, and Hazel was 32 years of age. They lived in a house they rented, had been married for two years and lived with their daughter, Mary Lou, who was 4 months old. Also residing with the family was Hazel's mother, Louisa A. Conger, age 68, who worked as a librarian in a library.9
Relocation1917Roy and Hazel moved with their daughter in 1917 to homestead in Powder River County, Montana.10
Occupation1919According to her daughter, in 1919 Hazel was persuaded to teach the Reder School, since teachers and money to pay them were hard to come by. The effects of World War I also added restrictions. Hazel taught various schools until her death ten years later.10
Residence*1919In the summer of 1919, a fire destroyed the Heaton's house on their homestead ranch in Powder River County and their 10-year-old daughter, Mary Lou, was sent to live for a few months with her aunt and uncle, A. D. and Elizabeth (Conger) Heaton, in Dickinson, North Dakota.10
Death*13 June 1929She died on 13 June 1929 in Powder River County, Montana, at age 51.2,1

Crayton was 44 and worked as a Lumber Dealer. His real estate was valued at $15,000 and his personal estate at $20,000. Louisa was 29 and was keeping house. Crayton's three children from his first marriage, Arthur at 19, Irene at 16 and Lillie, at 14, lived with the couple whose first child, Alice, had just been born the day before and was not enumerated. Irene and Lillie were both at school and Arthur, who had attended school within the last year, was working as a bookkeeper. Emily Anderson, age 19 and born in Sweden, also lived with the family as a domestic servant.

The Lucien Conger family also lived in Chicago Ward 5 in 1870, probably fairly near, since both families were enumerated by the same person only two days apart. In the other Conger household, Lucien was Crayton's brother and Samuel Shove and Elizabeth (Brown) Conger were Louisa's father and half-sister.4

The newly married couple lived with John Newton's brother, Norman Hurd Conger and his wife Mary, who was Elizabeth's sister. Clustered together on the same census page, and apparently living on neighboring farms, were two additional Conger brothers: Crayton Hall Conger and wife Minerva, and Lauren Clark Conger with his wife Amanda and their son Seth. Minerva and Amanda Conger were most likely sisters and their Hasbrook parents also lived on a neighboring farm in the cluster. And then, not too far away, were Mary and Elizabeth's parents, Alvah and Jenotia Wheeler with their family. Two more daughters still living in the Wheeler parents' home would also marry Conger brothers.6

He had stopped to visit his brother on the way and failed rapidly, before word could reach his family at Fort Union, where Crayton was the post trader.7,8

Marriage*15 September 1845He married Elizabeth Brown, daughter of James Ormond Brown and Elizabeth Everett Bolton, on 15 September 1845 in Knox County, Illinois. In both of the Illinois Indexes, his name was transcribed as "Lucas" W. Conger and the Conger Family source recorded the date as 1 Sep 1845.4,5,3,6
Census 1850*23 September 1850Elizabeth and Lucien West Conger appeared on the 1850 census taken on 23 September 1850 in Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois. On the 1850 Census report, Lucien was spelled "Lutian", he was age 24 and his occupation was Merchant. He was born in New York and was living with his wife, Elizabeth, age 24, born in Rhode Island. Others in the household were daughter, "Emmah", age 4 born Illinois, daughter Cora, age 1 born Illinois and two of Lucien's younger siblings, Edward Conger, age 14, and Lois Conger, 12, both born in New York and students.7
Residence*1864Following the death of his second wife in 1864, Samuel Shove went to live with the family of Lucien West Conger and Elizabeth Everett Brown his stepdaughter and son-in-law in Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois. With the Congers he found all the loving care and diligent attention that his advancing years, combined with his helpless condition, were necessary for his comfort.8
Census 1870*11 June 1870He and Elizabeth Conger appeared on the 1870 census taken on 11 June 1870 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois. Lucien was 46 and his occupation was Jeweler. The value of his real estate was recorded as $12,000 and his personal estate as $15,000. Elizabeth was 43 and keeping house. Included in the household were the couple's 14-year-old son Clarence LaForest Conger, recorded as "C. La Fay Conger", who was at school, and Edith B. Conger, believed to have been a relative and not yet identified, age 9 and born in Illinois, their newly married daughter Laura, age 17 and her husband, Alexander R. Webb, age 22, also a Jeweler, the 81-year-old Samuel Shove, Elizabeth Conger's stepfather, and a domestic, Mary Reil, born in Ireland, age 30.

The Crayton Hall Conger family also lived in Chicago Ward 5 in 1870, probably fairly near, since both families were enumerated by the same person only two days apart. In the other Conger household, Crayton was Lucien's brother and Louisa (Shove) Conger was Elizabeth's half-sister and Samuel Shove's daughter.9
Residence1873In 1873, Lucien W. Conger and Elizabeth Conger moved to Unionville, Putnam County, Missouri, and Elizabeth's stepfather, Samuel Shove, moved with them and continued to live with them until his death in 1874.1,8

(Son) Relocation12 April 1878 Within a few years of Roy's birth, his father's health began to fail. Thinking that a change in climate might help, his parents moved their family to New Mexico in 1877. His sister Alice, who was 7 years old, wrote later that she had only a dim recollection of the long journey. Roy was 4, Elizabeth 2, and Hazel was an infant. Their half-brother, Arthur, and his family made the trip also. Arthur was 26, his wife Ella was 21, and their young daughter Lucy was 3.

At that time, Trinidad, Colorado was the end of the railroad line and the family made the remainder of the trip to New Mexico on the Santa Fe Trail by stagecoach. It was a tiring and dusty trip, and would have been especially so for the young children. His father and Arthur invested together in the purchase of what was commonly known then as a "Post Traders" store at Fort Union, Mora County, New Mexico. Crayton was appointed as the post trader and they bought the Sutler's store on 12 April 1878.2,3,4
Marriage*He married Grace Fitz.1,5
