Dennis, do you have any records of Kentucky or Tennessee Conkens? I have a book of my father's with Ages, Kentucky. But have found no connection so far. Good luck!

Sorry, I don't. Have you the Mormon generalogy site for help? I found a lot of
data about Conkin there, nothing alas about my line, though. Good luck!

Have been searching for relatives forever. Found Conkin's in Kingsport, TN. Met several and they are all from Hagen Conkin Kingsport or Greeneville Tn. but I do not think my grandfather is from the same line. My grandfather's name was Robert Franklin Conken or maybe he changed it from Conkin and all I know is that he was from Kentucky and married my grandmother in Claiborne County Tennessee in late 1800's. Her name was Laura Simmons and they lived there and had my father Wheeler L. Conken who is now deceased. They had a daughter, Irene, who died while a teenager. I know my grandmother's relatives but none of them knew anything about Robert Conken. Do you have any names from Kentucky that would fit his age.My grandparent's marriage records shows date of Oct. 30, 1908. Laura d1966 b1886(approx)and Robert d1967b1881. Hagan Conkin b1817 Washington, TN.married Barbary in Tn. Any info appreciated.

It has been so long since I have done any searching for my Conkin line that I can't answer you right off the bat.... will talk to my sister and get a little refreshing of my memory....I must say that the Conkin's are an illusive bunch so far...there are still a bunch of them living in SW Missouri but they seem to know as little as I do. Anyway I'll see what I can come up with and we may turn out to be cousins...???? later!

Marha? Is it Marha or Martha?
