Hi I am Trish Grace Smith Conger was my grandmother. Samuel was her father. How did you get his middle name? All we had was Samuel W he was born 14 FEB 1855 and married Anna Smith. Please send me more info. I have most of this with a few exceptions. My aunt Mary and I are doing research and this line has eluded us. The Congers have been hard to research. Please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. And yes Diane Peterson is a 2nd cousin. Oh yeah Marion remarried someone with last name of Murphy And Annabell was first amrried to a Hagen, Samuel M first wife died he remarried a some first anme of Gertrude. I do not know her last name. Maybe this is the connection. I have found also that many of the familys changed their spellings of their last names. Like my husband's mother's family onlu one uncle has kept the Finnish spelling LINJA the rest used LINE whick is what it means in Finland.
