. 3. Jerry Conley's website, Page66.html#17.
. 4. trees.ancestry.com, owner: dewalden. This site has confused the above Walter Conley with Walter Franklin
. Conley (Frank) (#D1453), who had wife Ella Wallen.
. 5. trees.ancestry.com, owner: rugrat0868. This site claims that the above Walter Conley was William Walter Conley,
. b 22 May "1884" Wheelersburg, Ky, d 19 Sep 1977 Knoxville, Tenn (SSDI "b 1888" 294-07-2506 Ohio), m Florence
. Elizabeth Small, b 31 Mar 1889 Tenn, d 16 Aug 1970 (not in SSDI), d/o William and Elizabeth Small. Lists children
. William Franklin Conley and Mary Mildred Conley.
. Walter's LR: Knoxville, Knox Co, Tenn 37901, and the SSDI gives his birth date as 22 May 1888.
. Also claims that this Walter was s/o William Smith Conley Sr (b 1827) and Sarah Patrick. This would be William
. Conley (#C15), but this family does not have a Walter Conley, b either 1884 or ca 1889. So this is a mixture of
. corrrect and incorrect info.
. 6. www.findagrave.com, info by Donnie J. Hazel, gives Walter's name as W. Walter Conley, b 22 May 1884, d 19 Sep
. 1977, bur Mayo Cem, Paintsville. Florence E. Conley is also bur there.
