. whose family moved to Logan Co, Va (WVa)
. author: Michael D. Nestor, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Z1 ? 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.
Z2 2. Garland Conley, b ca 1777-82 Montgomery Co, Va, m Elizabeth Farley (Betty).
. 3. Bailey Conley. Supposedly b ca 1775-78 and poss the Bailey Conley who m ____ Hatfield, d/o James C. Hatfield and Zur-
. ilda Dunlap.
. 4. Obedience Bridget Conley (Biddy), b 1780, m Robert Lilly.
. ? 5. Fluvania Conley, m John Payne. She was another issue of Thomas acc to one source.
. Note: Other SW Virginia references, relationship to the above, if any, unknown:
. ? 1. John Connely,
. There were two John Connelly/Conley's in the Montgomery Co area. One m 18 Jul 1808 Montgomery Co, Va to Delilah Ship,
. Francis Munsey surety. This John is probably the one referred to in "The Conley Clan of Eastern Kentucky", p 554.
. Another is:
B1 John Connelly/Connely/Conley, b ca 1775 Montgomery Co, Va, d 1850-60 Giles Co, Va, m ca 1803 Montgomery Co to
. Mary Munsey, b 1783, d/o Holten Musey and Alice Layne.

. 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).
