David H. Conley (#D3), David M. Conley (#D31), and David (above), all lived in the Oil Springs Fork of Paint Creek.  David
.               H. disappeared after 1841, and David M. went to Ark ca 1842-44, and returned by the 1846 Johnson Co tax list.  The first John-
.               son Co deed involving David M. was in 1849, but there is a chance of ambiguity in the early years of Johnson Co, i.e. if only one
.               David was in the county, a distinction may not have been used.
