Re: Condre/ Condrey/ Condry
I;m re-posting this because it has never shown up in the main index. Apparently I posted it at a time when they were working on the system, during that long period when the search engines were not working.
Do you have a date for the marriage of Mary and Culman? I ask because there is a query about Coleman Condry on the Condrey forum.
About the variant spellings: those depended, of course, on the preference of the person making the record. They don't really distinguish one family from another. Here are some examples.
On 30 July 1850, my 2ggf Lilburn and his brothers and sisters met to sign a document about their dead brother Albert's Mexican War land grant. The signatures are in their own hand. Here they are:
Here is Lilburn in 4 census records:
Hamilton Co., TN 1840 p. 155
Hamilton Co. TN 1850 census p. 475 family 1467
Lilburn Condray32 b.TN, farmer
1860 Marion Co.,Ark, Buffalo Fork Twsp, P.O. Buffalo City, Ark.
1870 Arkansas census
Crawford Co., AR, p. 243, household 39, Lee's Creek Twp
Lilburn Conder61 b. TN, white male, farm laborer, no real estate, $400 per. prop
So he is Condry, Condre, Condray, Conder. And one of his brothers is Condrey on the same day that Lilburn is a Condry.
And here is one older example:
Beverley Fleet, Virginia Colonial Abstracts: Vol. III, Northumberland Co. Record of Births 1661-1820, Baltimore, Genealogical Publishing Co., 1961.
