.             Note:  The above John Donaldson Connelly was claimed by Willam Elsey Connelley to be either a brother or 1st cousin of
.                        
Capt Henry Conley (#D) of Floyd Co, Ky.  If he is generally correct, the 1st cousin relationship is more likely, since
.                        Henry's brother was apparently
John Connely (#A) of Ashe Co, NC, but I feel this claimed relationship is likely not
.                        correct.
