All of the Conkins I know are in Kingsport, TN. They have reunion last Sunday of July every year in Kingsport. Have not attended and although talked with one and tried to contact his mother, noone appears interested in discussing ancestry. However, may be since my family spelled name Conken not in. My father is deceased and he had not siblings that lived. His mother and father were living in Claiborne Cty, Tn. and his father or grandfather had no relatives.

I think all the Conkin and Conken families are connected as my line spells it both ways. Can you tell me your line in the Conken family (does the name James Patterson Conkin sound familiar or what about Hagen Conkin?)

None of those names are familiar to me but we also have both those spellings. My father's name was Lewis Marion Conken, his father's name was John Andrew Conken and his father's name was William H. Conken. These were all in and around the Harlan County, KY area. I hope you can find a connection. I'm not having very much luck. Lois

I don't know if this will help you or not but my grandparents were married in the Claibourne County Courthouse. Their names were John Andrew Conken and Americus Elizabeth Evans. His father is William H. Conken. My father's name is Lewis Marion Conken. Hope this helps some.

Could you give me some dates for these ancesters, I have a lot of William Conkins but no William H. - if you could give me some dates for him or places I am sure I can connect him in this line.

Tell me some years and I will go look up the census on John Andrew and William H.

If you will tell me your grandparents dates (birth, marriage, death or whatever you have and a place-county and state) I will try to connect you to the Conkin family tree I have. Most of those around Kingsport are descendants of Hagan who served in the Civil War - but he had at least 5 brothers. In many of the census, they are all listed as Conken not Conkin.
