.                             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.
