My family tree from its origin starts with Robert Conner of Madison County, Ohio who married Nancy Walker. The Conners were married in 1829. Other family members are Joseph Merritt, Clinton County, New York who married Harriett Walker, Nancy Walker's sister. On my mother's side, James Miller Shaw of Slammen, Scotland married Elizabeth Gilmore in Coal City, Illinois. The Gilmore family came from Airshire, Scotland.
