Birth*January 1867Isaac Timmons was probably born in January 1867 in Charleston, Coles County, Illinois.3,4,5
Name VariationHis full name was Isaac Seymour Timmons.2
(Son) Census State KS 18751 March 1875Isaac was listed on the 1875 Kansas State census taken on 1 March 1875 in the household of his parents in Lyon, Cloud County, Kansas. He was 8 years old.6
(Son) Census US 188019 June 1880Isaac was enumerated on the 1880 census taken on 19 June 1880 in the household of his father in Fifth Street, Concordia, Cloud County, Kansas. He was 13 years old.7

Marriage*28 December 1906He married Dora Hitchcock, daughter of William Henry Hitchcock and Emma May Hensley, on 28 December 1906 in Elwood, Gosper County, Nebraska. Isaac was 39 years of age and Dora was probably age 20.2
(Brother) Murder21 October 1908Isaac's brother, Cyrus Y. Timmons, brutally murdered his wife, Estella S. Bogart, who was 19 years old, on 21 October 1908 in Salem, Marion County, Oregon. Isaac lived in Nebraska and we have no evidence that he had any relationship with his brother in Oregon. However, one year after the murder, Isaac's brother-in-law, Charles Russell Hitchcock, married Clara B. (Wells) Westbrook Timmons Warner, who had been the first wife of Cyrus Y. Timmons and was the mother of their daughter, Pearl Iona Timmons. So, it's possible that Isaac and his wife were aware of Cyrus's crime.

b. 22 February 1874, d. 21 March 1931
Father*Richard M. Timmons2 b. 20 Dec 1829, d. 15 Oct 1900
Mother*Sarah E. Raines2 b. 1834, d. b 1888
Birth*22 February 1874Richard Francis Timmons was born on 22 February 1874 in Concordia, Cloud County, Kansas.2,1
Name VariationHis name was also recorded as Francis.1,2,3
(Son) Census State KS 18751 March 1875Francis was listed on the 1875 Kansas State census taken on 1 March 1875 in the household of his parents in Lyon, Cloud County, Kansas. He was three months old.3
(Son) Census US 188019 June 1880Francis was enumerated on the 1880 census taken on 19 June 1880 in the household of his father in Fifth Street, Concordia, Cloud County, Kansas. He was 5 years old.2
Marriage*7 August 1896He married first, as her first husband, Lulu Nelson, daughter of Valentine T. Nelson and Alice Jane Paris, on 7 August 1896 in Lexington, Dawson County, Nebraska.4,1,5
Census US 1900*3 June 1900Lulu and Richard Francis Timmons were enumerated on the 1900 census taken on 3 June 1900 in Grant, Cloud County, Kansas. Richard, who was enumerated as R. F., was 26 years of age and worked as a day laborer, and Lulu was 22 years of age. They rented their house, had been married for four years, and Lulu was recorded as having given birth to only one child, and that he was living, however the couple's two sons were enumerated with them in 1900. Earl was 2 years old and the baby, Roy, was two months old.6
Divorce*Richard and Lulu (Nelson) Timmons separated, and were probably divorced, although we don't know exactly when. They were enumerated together with their two sons, and recorded as married, in June of 1900, and we've not been able to find Richard, Lulu, or either of their sons, with any certainty, anywhere in the 1910 census. We suspect they may have been relocating that year from Kansas to Oregon, and may have evaded the census takers. Richard married his second wife in September of 1912 in Oregon and, on the 1920 census, his two sons from his first marriage were enumerated with him and his second wife. His first wife also remarried, although we don't know when, and have not been able to identify her anywhere on the 1920 census. Her Find a Grave memorial recorded her married surname as "Clausen", and from the Washington state record of her death in January of 1937 we learned that she was a widow, and that her husband's name had been "Carl Clausen", whom we've also not been able to identify. On the 1930 census she was recorded as Lula Clausen, was 51 years of age, divorced, and was the Landlady of a Rooming House she rented.7,8,4,9,10
(Brother) Murder21 October 1908Richard's brother, Cyrus Y. Timmons, brutally murdered his wife, Estella S. Bogart, on 21 October 1908 in Salem, Marion County, Oregon. Stella was 19 years old. Transcriptions from several newspaper articles reporting the tragic events of the killing, as well as background information and the coroner's jury verdict, are included on Stella's Find a Grave memorial page at https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/102900582/estella-s-timmons.

Marriage*15 September 1912He married second, as her first husband, Letta Azuba Casteel, daughter of Perry Casteel and Ruth Frisbee, about 15 September 1912 in Eugene, Lane County, Oregon.13,1,7
Census US 1920*5 January 1920Letta and Richard Timmons were enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 5 January 1920 on L Street, Grants Pass, Josephine County, Oregon. Richard was 45 years of age and owned and operated a second hand store, and Letty was 36 years of age. Both were able to read and write. The person providing the answers to the census taker did not know whether their house, which was on a farm, was owned or rented. Richard's two sons from his first marriage, Earl and Roy, and Richard and Letty's three children were enumerated with the couple in 1920. Earl was 22 years of age, able to read and write, and worked with his father as a store keeper in the family's second hand store.
