. David has been incorrectly identified by some as the son of Capt Henry Conley (#D), but this David was living in same area of
. Floyd as the elder David Conley (#C), as shown by many census and tax lists. Capt Henry's son David, b 1781, was the one
. listed in many records as David H. Conley (#D3), and likewise he was living near Capt Henry and his other known sons. Since
. David H. disappeared from the Floyd Co and Johnson Co area in the 1840's, he has been missed by many researchers, and there-
. fore they have incorrectly assumed that this David was him. Also most researchers had omitted David Conley (#C), b ca 1747,
. from their genealogies, and likewise his probable sons, thus fueling the incorrect assumption that this David, b ca 1784-87, was
. Capt Henry's son. However in recent years more sources are appearing online with the correct lineage.

. David Conley, and the latter is apparently correct.
