Da Peggy Conley,5 D (Henry,4)
. b 8 Aug 1779 prob NC; d 1826.
. m Elijah Cantrell, b 1770's ("1778 NC"). Elijah claimed by some to have died 1855 Morgan Co, Ky, but this is likely untrue, as
. he isn't located in the 1840 or 1850 census.
. Elijah was supposedly a s/o Jacob Cantrell.
. Note: Acc to one source, he was s/o Isaac Cantrell, b ca 1729 Wilmington, New Castle Co, Pa (or Concord, Delaware Co, Pa) and
. Talitha Cloud. However their son Elijah died in 1798, so he could not be Peggy Conley's husband. This Elijah had two
. children by his 2nd marr: Elizabeth and Asa David, acc to Ref 4 below. And had a son Peter by his 1st marriage, who filed
. a protest, naming other children by the 1st marriage, including son Jacob, b 1752, who m Hannah Denton.
. One source says he was a s/o Isaac Cantrell Jr, s/o the above Isaac.
. Another source says he was s/o John Cantrell, b 1750 Augusta Co Va, and Mary Clendinen.
. Most websites on this family are full of major errors.
