I have been interested in Kitty Wilkins for some time. My mother’s grandparents, Charles Henry and Ella Yates Jewett and Lewis Albert and Cynthia Ann Converse Conway, were all early settlers of Bruneau and of Three Creek, and my mother grew up at Three Creek near Murphy’s Hot Springs, previously owned by the Kitty Wilkins.

Lewis and Cynthia Conway were also friends of the Walters family, whose daughter Lizzie was Kitty Wilkins’s brother Sam’s first wife. Kitty gave the Conway’s son Paul his first horse.

So my family were acquainted with Kitty Wilkins and lived in the same circles.
