Aquilla Conaway is my 3rd great grandfather. My grandmother was Lina Lillian Starkey, daughter of Belinda Conaway and Aaron Starkey.Belinda was the daughter of William Conaway and his first wife, Rachel Cadwalader.William was a son of Aquilla Conaway and Margaret Barr.The only William Conaway and Margaret Barr marriage I have found was listed in Adams Co., Ohio.I don't know if that couple is the Margaret Barr and William Conaway that I am related to, or where the surname Barr came from, other than my late aunt, but there are other Barr marriages in that same county.
A late aunt of mine believed that Aquilla's father was named Silas Conaway, but I have nothing to confirm it.
I have been talking with Delmar Conaway who informs me that Aquilla Conaway is the son of Richard Conaway and Delmar said that he will mail me some proof this week.When I get the proof I would be happy to forward copies to you.
If you have copies of the probate papers for Aquilla Conaway or his wife Margaret, would you mind sending me copies?I would be happy to pay for the costs involved.
