Posted to the CONDRA, CONDRAY, CONDREAY, CONDREY forums
I've been reading with great interest the various posts about the Condreays and variant spellings and have learned a great deal about the family's history. What I have in my file is mostly thanks to the generosity of Charles Garrett and Randall Stevens.
I'm descended from William Condreay (born 1804 in Claiborne Co., TN) through his son Able/Abel. Abel was a brother to Dennis Condreay, and I've seen several messages on these boards regarding this particular Dennis' family. All the evidence I've seen back to this particular William seems pretty solid. Before that though, some information I've seen indicates that William was the son of Eliphus, born about 1788 in TN and also the subject of some messages here, but this seems to be iffy. What is the basis for assigning William to Eliphas, and is there evidence to other parentage?
