Searching for the ancestry of Mary Ella Conger, born probably in late 1860's or early 1870's. On April 11, 1900 she married Albert Hayes in Berrien Co., Ga. and had several children.Albert left Georgia and went to Florida sometime around 1914.Mary Ella Conger Hayes then married James A. Walker. Mary Ella appears to have had at least one illegitiment child before her marriage to Albert Hayes. (daughter Ida born, according to 1900 census, in October 1895) She may have had two more. Some sources show her father as William R. Conger of Mississippi and while that William R. Conger did have a daughter Mary Ella, I do not believe she is the above described person. Mary Ella was allegedly living in the household of Jordan Sumner (my cousin) in the mid 1890's.This Jordan Sumner was ambushed and shot to death by a "Joseph Conger" and "John Gibbs" in November 1896.Rumor says Joseph was a brother of Mary Ella. Can anyone identify this Mary Ella Conger and/or her ancestory, siblings etc.Or Joseph Conger?Or John Gibbs? I'd appreciate any clues.
