BIOGRAPHY: Elias Conger and his family moved from Iowa to Osborne Co., Kansas about 1880 and there tried to farm a quarter section. They built a sod house in which Minnie Ethel Conger was born. After a succession of
corp failures, Colista became ill, so Elias loaded his family and transportable possesions into wagons and returned to Blocton, Iowa where Colista's family lived. She died there. Elias went back to Centerville, IA and farmed. Years later, Henry Ellsworth Conger, their son, had stones put on the graves of both parents.
