My name is Charlotte and I am a direct descendant of Samuel Conn married to Elizabeth Ingram.I have read numerous posts requesting the siblings and parents of Samuel Conn.I hesitated to post this; however, maybe if all of us put our research together we can get the hard cold proof.I have some of it now.I have John Conn's will as quoted below:
"Be it known unto all men by these presants, that I John Conn of the State of Georgia, have made and declared that my last will & testament in writing bearing date July the third eighteen hundred, declare, confirm and ratify my said last will and do give & bequeath unto John Conn of & my will & meaning is that this codiel or schedule be returned & adjudged to be part or parcel of my said will & testament, & that all things therein contained & mentioned be faithfully performed in a full & ample a manner in every respect as if the same were so declared & set down in my said will -- in witness whereof I the said John Conn have hereunto set my hand & seal, Simon Conn, my son has received his share, and also Samuel Conn has received his share - John Conn & Thomas Conn & Isaac Conn are to divide the land equally between them, & to maintain my widow Elizabeth Conn during her life or widowhood, Caty Martin, my daughter has received her share and likewise, Peggy Murphy has received her share,Janie Conn & Mary Conn & Agnes Conn my goods & chattels are to be equally divided between John Conn & Thomas Conn & Isaac Conn, Janie Conn & Mary Conn & Agnes Conn -- this given under my hand & seal & my widow is to have all the my house & goods at her pleasure.

The following notes were extracted from 200 years of family notes handed down.I have not set about to obtain the proven facts as of yet; however, the will does mention the same children as are in the family notes.
