    Found this reference regarding “Rummy” card games.

    Others connect the origins of Rummy games to early Spanish communities who moved over to the west. The Spanish card game of Conquian bares a striking resemblance to Gin Rummy and is sometimes considered to be an ancestor of all modern Rummy games. One theory was that Conquian (then known as “Coon Can”, “Coon-can”, “Coon-King” or “Conkin”) started in Spain hundreds of years ago and was later carried to Mexico before spreading to the American southwest in the late 19th century.
