The Conley Clan of Eastern Kentucky", 1984, The Magoffin County Historical Society,
.                             except for William's daughters Rachel and Mary in Vol I, p 206-09.
.                       2.   Jerry Conley's website, Page2.html#10.  He and everyone else list
Jacob Washington Conley (George) (#D111) as a
.                             s/o the above William W. Conley.
.                       3.   Evidence that Jacob (George) Washington Conley was a s/o Henry Conley, and not William W. Conley:
.                             The claim that he is William's son makes sense if one only looks at the 1850 census, where Washington Conley is listed
.                             with William's family.  Apparently he was just living with them, and the following shows he was the s/o Henry Conley.
.                             Henry had a male of the right age in the 1840 census, and William W. didn't  The tax lists are also consistent with this:
.                             1840 Floyd Co census, p 284, William Conly, 20001-01001.  (2 sons b 1835-40 - these are David and James, NO sons
.                                      born 1830-35)
.                             1840 Floyd Co census, p 282, Henry Conley, 111001-01001.  (1 son b 1830-35 - George/Jacob; and 2 sons b 1835-40 -
.                                      who would be David H. and James E., and an unidentified female, b ca 1830-35)
.                             1840 Floyd Co tax list, p 6, line 24, William W. Conley, 600 acres on Pigeon, 1 WM >21, 1 child 7-17.  (Rachel)
.                             1841 Floyd Co tax list, p 2, line 2, William Conley, 400 acres on Pigeon, 1 WM > 21, 1 child 7-17.  (Rachel)
.                             1842 Floyd Co tax list, p 4, line 43, William Conley, 1000 acres on Pigeon Cr, 1 WM > 21, 2 child 7-17.  (Rachel and
.                                      Elizabeth)
.                             1840 Floyd Co tax list, p 6, line 3, Henry Conley Jr, 75 acres on S.R. Fork, 1 WM > 21, 2 child 7-17.  (George/Jacob;
.                                      David H. and James E. too young; and the female, b 1830-35 in the 1840 census.)
.                             1842 Floyd Co tax list, p 4, line 38, Henry J. Conley, 100 acres on Licking Waters, 1 WM > 21, 1 child 7-17.
