The November 1905 census records Ed Greengrass as being 35 years old, which implies that he was born in 1870.
The 1905 census gives Ed's HoChunk (Winnebago) name as Che Win Che Ka Ra Hay Kah, which is for the Thunderbird Clan name Ciwįjikerehiga, "He Who Makes a Rumbling Noise," a reference to distant thunder.
“The sons of Wanknaroskaka or James Blackhawk were Nojumbka, meaning The thunder who strikes the tree or John Blackhawk and Wakjagohoyka, (Returning with victory), Albert Blackhawk, died July 1912, at age 20. The daughters are Chimkananewinka (She who goes on the village) born 1875 married Edwin Greengrass; Ahosojwaywinka (She whose feathers are worn) born 1881, married Arthur Cas_man, and Wakanjapinwinka (The good thunder woman), born 1886, married Charles Greengrass and lives at Trempealeau, Wisconsin.” (Jipson, 241)
