Biography

Birth

Kate was born about 1853.

Names

The 1921 census she gave her name as HoNookNaGinKah, probably a misreading of HeNookNanGinKah (Hinųk Nąžįga), "Standing Woman."

In many censuses, she appears as "Mary" rather than "Kate".

Marriages

In most censuses, Moses lodged with his wife Kate (b. 1853). However, an Indian census taken on 1 November 1904 shows him lodging with a different Kate (b. 1866), who is recorded as his wife. In most other censuses, Kate (b. 1866) is shown living alone with her son Moses Jr, but in very close proximity to Moses Sr. Yet the Wisconsin state census taken elsewhere on 30 June 1905, in the township of Manchester, Jackson County, Wisconsin, shows him lodging with "Mary" (the elder Kate) and their children Caroline, Stella, and grandson Frank. The elder Kate, under the name "Mary", is also recorded as Moses' wife. This shows that the two Kates were co-wives of Moses, and that is first wife Mary had changed her name to "Kate" in order to obfuscate the plural nature of their marriage.

Death

She passed away in 20 September 1929, about three months after the death of her husband. (Death census) Although her death was recorded in Tomah, it appears from a record in the neighboring state, that she died in Hudson, Minnesota. (Death Index)
