hunting for Conleys...
and led here by a name!
I'm looking for some input or sense in all of the following: First, I've been hunting for Louisa Conley for ever, it seems (really only been 3 years...). Anyway, I find a Louisey Conley with a George Conley in 1880 Carroll County Arkansas (from the Family History library, also available through Carroll County Genweb):
George CONLEY Self M Male W 57 KY
Nancy E. CONLEY Wife M Female W 49 MO
Sintha Ann CONLEY Dau S Female W 23 MO
Louisey E. CONLEY Dau S Female W 11 MO
She is the right age AND she was living next door people I KNOW she considered cousins (the family of Jesse and Arminda Conley). Sintha Ann married Shelvy Rhine/Rine in Carroll County, and is spelled as "Connelly" in that marriage book.
BUT this same family shows the father as Joseph in the 1860 Douglas County Ark census,
35 312 312 Conley Joseph 32 M W Farmer KY
36 312 312 Conley Nancy E 24 F W MO
37 312 312 Conley Jesse 8 M W MO . . . . . this Jesse is probably living next door to "George Conley" in the 1880 census...
38 312 312 Conley Mary E 6 F W MO . . . . . (this Mary Conley married Isaac Rhine in Carroll County, but is listed in the marriage book as Mary Couley)
39 312 312 Conley Sintha A 3 F W MO . . . .see above note
A marriage record for Joseph Conley and Nancy Carter Conley shows up in Benton Co Ark in 1851.
Carter Nancy Ellen Conley Joseph June 19 1851144
BUT in 1850 there is a Joseph CONDLEY in the 1850 Benton Co Ark census, next door to the Carters, and along another family of Jackson Condley nearby.
19 502 502 Condley Carter 44 M Farmer Kentucky
20 502 502 Condley Mary 47 F South Carolina
21 502 502 Condley Joseph 25 M Kentucky
22 502 502 Doaty Elizabeth 23 F Kentucky
23 502 502 Condley Harrison 15 M Farmer Indiana
24 502 502 Condley Mary 12 F Missouri
with this Jackson family living right near by
12 501 501 Condley Jackson 21 M Farmer Kentucky
13 501 501 Condley Arminda 21 F Georgia
14 501 501 Condley Mary J. 7/12 F Missouri
So, does anyone know if the the 1880 George is the same as the 1850/1860 Joseph Conley/Condley? Also, does anyone know where if any of them can be found in 1870 anywhere? And one last question: does anyone know about the Harrison Condley born in Indiana about 1835?
thanks for anything!
