John B. CONNELLY who was born in Mecklenburg Co., NC in 1792. He gave a deposition on the Rev. War Pension Application of a John CONNELLY from Brunswick Co., VA who had moved to Mecklenburg Co., NC after the War. This John CONNELLY moved to Bedford Co. TN in the 1830's and died there in 1835. John B. CONNELLY was in Maury Co., TN in 1840 and Marshall Co., TN in 1850 and 1860.
John CONNELLY(Rev War Sol) married Mary STANFORD in Mecklenburg(or Lincoln Co.) in 1790 and Mary was in Maury Co., TN. in 1846 when she applied for a pension as the widow of John. Unfortunately no proof has been found as of yet that John B. was the eldest son of John(Rev War Sol) but several researchers who are tracking other lines believe that he was. My gg-grandfather John B. had a son John who was born about 1835. John B. his brother Eli William another brother James Mc. all have information recorded about them indicating they were brick masons. Several of there descendants were also masons and brick layers in Marshall, Maury, Hickman, and Dickson Co., in Middle TN. If you can share any information on this CONNELLY line it would be greatly appreciated.
