. Note: The following are claimed by some to be Sampson's issue, although not listed with him in 1860 or 1870. Another version
. is that they were a s/o Sampson's brother David Conley (#C14). Some descendants of David Conley (Red Dave) say
. he is not a son of Sampson. David had a sister Nancy Jane Conley, b ca 1856. David and Nancy were poss the David
. Morris,18 Ky, and Nancy Morris,16 Ky, living with Wm and Elizabeth Shepherd in the 1870 Floyd Co census. David
. may have been the David Teatur,9 Ky, living with Wm and Elizabeth Shepherd in the 1860 Magoffin Co census. Dave
. and Nancy were probably related in some way to Sampson or his wife. Their father was most likely a Conley, and their
. mother may have been a Morris, since they used the name Morris when young but later used the Conley name. Perhaps
. their mother was Elizabeth (who may have been a Morris), who married William Shepherd, but this is speculation that
. needs to be researched further in the courthouse records.
