Z    Unknown Conley,1                                                                                                                                (ancestry unknown)
.          This may actually be
James Conley (#F), b prior 1755, and not Thomas Conley as I had previously surmised.
.          prob b 1740s or 50s; died before 8 Dec 1792 Montgomery Co, Va.
.          m Susannah Smith.
.          Wid, Susannah m(2) 5 May 1790 Montgomery Co, Va to Richard Chapman.
.          Her 1790 2nd marriage date isn't necessarily inconsistent with her being Thomas' widow, since even though his estate's date was
.          1792, he may have died a few years earlier.  One website claims Susannah's husband was Thomas Conley.

.          This Thomas Conley may be a s/o Edmund Connelly, and a brother of
Capt Henry Conley (#D).  There is no proof of this, but
.          Capt Henry spent time in Montgomery Co, visting relatives according to family tradition.
.          If Thomas and Garland Conley of Logan Co were first cousins as claimed, then there would be an unidentified brother of Thomas.

.          The following is for Thomas Connelly of Montgomery Co, Va:
.          1788, 17 Mar: Montgomery Co tax list: Thomas Connely, no WM 16-21, no slaves, 1 horse.
.          1792, 8 Dec: Montgomery Co: Apr of estate ret, Thomas Connelly.
.          1793, 1 Jan: Montgomery Co Will Bk B, p 190: Appraisement of estate of Thomas Connely.
.          1793 Montgomery Co Court Order Bk 6, p 63: Inv and Appr of estate of Thomas Connelly.
.          1793 Montgomery Co Court Order Bk 7, p 94: Appr of estate of Thomas Connelly.

.          a Thomas Connelly of the right age, and with a number of sons of the right age, lived in Halifax Co, Va in 1820, listed near a George
.          C. Connelly.  Anderson Connelly was also in Halifax Co in 1820.  

.          Thomas was possibly same as the Thomas Conley, b ca 1741, who was possibly a brother of
Capt Henry Conley (#D), who was
.          also in Montgomery Co for about 3 years, and according to family tradition, was visiting relatives there.  Capt Henry Conley's pen-
.          sion papers only state he was there to raise and train a militia force.  However, the family tradition of the Conley family of Logan
.          Co, Va (WVa) states that they came from Montgomery Co, Va, and that Thomas was born in Dublin, Ireland, and his father's name
.          unknown.  One source says this family went to Dublin, Pulaski Co, Va.  This raises the possibility that
Thomas Connelly/Con-
.          nely (#B) and his supposed son John, are this same family and not related to the Capt Henry Conley clan.

.          This family moved to Logan Co, Va (WVa) by 1830, but not located there in 1820.  Logan Co was formed in 1824 from Giles, Taze-
.          well, Kanawha, and Cabell Co's.

.          issue:

1.   Thomas Hackett Conley (Hackett,Tom), b ca 1770 Va, m(1) Susannah White (Susan), m(2) ____ Brumfield.
.                Actually, supposedly a cousin to Garland Conley, below.  Also supposedly born in Dublin, Ireland, but perhaps Dublin, Pulas-
.                ki Co, Va, adjacent to Montgomery Co, is where he was born.

5.   Susannah, Nancy, and Easter Conley:  They are probably closely related to this Conley family, since Susannah and Nancy
.                 were living with John Conley Jr (s/o the above John Conley) in their later years, and Susannah and Easter were connected
.                 in a law case.  Or Susannah may be the widow of
James Conley (#F).
