to all who can help, my name is timothy conway. I have recently been given a copy of a genealogy started by one of my father's cousins almost two decades ago.he was forced to stop do to other obligations, but i really want to take up the cause again.
the earliest record that was discovered was the birth of my g g g grandfather, William Conway, in Missouri c.1843 to parents from somewhere in TN.He married a miss Lucinda Singleton on Dec. 3, 1865 in Madison Co. MO. He died in Nov 1879/ Feb. 1880 (2 dates given by different sources)in Polk twp, Madison Co. MO.His wife died Mar. 20, 1928 and is buried in Roselle, Madison CO. MO.
I would love to go back as far as possible, finding out where my family is actually from - whether we are irish, or perhaps welch from a town that bears the conway name (spelled conwy and used by shakespeare).Thanks for any help that can be given,
