. 2. Info from "The Conley Page", Joseph E. Conley:
. 3. The writings of William Elsey Connelley (#D2311). He apparently is the original and only source for the early
. Connelly generations, and claimed that Henry B. Connelly was related to Capt Henry Conley (#D) of Floyd Co, Ky.
. "Eastern Kentucky Papers, The Founding of Harman's Station, With an Account of The Indian Captivity of Mrs. Jennie
. Wiley and the Exploration and Settlement of the Big Sandy Valley in the Virginias and Kentucky, To Which is Affixed a
. Brief Account of the Connelly Family and Some of Its Collateral and Related Families in America", 1910, p 97: referring
. to Dr. Henry Connelly, Governor of NM: "His father was John Donaldson Connelly, born in Virginia, and either bro-
. ther or first cousin to Capt Henry Connelly..." Since Henry's brother was apparently John Connely (#A) of Ashe Co,
. NC, then by deduction, John Donaldson Connelly was Capt Henry's 1st cousin and a grandson of Edmund Connelly.
. Of course this line of reasoning isn't proof.
. 4. "Doniphan's Expedition and the Conquest of New Mexico and California", John Taylor Hughes, William Elsey Connel-
. ley, 1907, with info on Henry B. Connelly's life and family. On p 177: "The descendants of Thomas are far more num-
. erous than are those of Edmund. Dr. Henry Connelly was one of the descendants of Thomas". With respect to Henry
. B. Connelly's father John Donaldson Connelly and uncle Sanford Ramey Connelly, Mr. Connelley wrote on p 279: "I
. have not succeeded in securing the records of the family, and cannot state positively which one of a number of brothers
. was their father. However, there is litle doubt that it was Thomas....." This shows the degree of stretch that Mr. Con-
. nelly did in order to show that Gov Henry B. Connelly was related to Mr. Connelley's ancestor Capt Henry Conley.
