Writer Surname

I am searching for info about the parents of Charles Marion and Esther Writer. What I know is this: Charles Marion (aka C.M.) Writer was born about 1871, where I am not certain, and his sister, Esther A. Writer was born 1876 in Sumner County, Kansas. Their mother is listed as Puss Ann Writer, a widow, age 28, and they were living with William L. and Emma Morris in the 1880 Sumner County, Kansas Census. I do not know if Puss (Percilla ?)Ann was the sister of William or Emma.

To confuse matters, Charles Marion Writer married Esther Jane McMillan and Esther Writer married James Alex McMillan,the brother of Esther Jane. They are all found in 1900 Missouri Census in Lawrence County.

No other information on the parents is found except that Esther Writer McMillan says their father was from Dublin, Ireland and Puss. Ann was born in Canada. No maiden name given or other information except Charles and Esther Writer were both orphaned as a very young age.
