Am researching my ggggggrandfather, Isaac Conley, born in Glasgow, Scotland circ. 1745 and married to Mary Kennedy born circ. 1750.

Anybody here descended from him?

Isaac Conlee and Mary Kennedy were in Barren Co, KY. He was born there. I am trying to find his father who may have been in Scotland--not sure if he came to America. His name presents problems with spelling-Conley, Conklin, Conlee.

Contact me if you have any other information.
Thanks,
Gail

I recently lost a few FTW files on the Conlee family but as I remember my 'confusion', Isaac was born in the town of Glasgow KY. I also remember some speculation that his father was Conlee O Conell, born in County Cork Ireland. I never got an opportunity to confirm anything before I lost the files.

Is this the Isaac Conlee who lived in Rockingham Co NC by 1790 & died 1816 Barren Co KY? Could you please report your source that his wife Mary, had maiden name Kennedy? Many of us have been looking for that information for many years.

Sorry for the delay. I changed my email add in order to get a DSL connection, new to our area, and didn't get your message.

In reading your message, I see that I had some questionable information when I last posted. I continue researching this family and find a lot of conflicting information about Isaac Conlee. In going through my files, I find referance to Mary Kennady. In a posting I found in the CountyCork-L Archives for 2000-02, subject [Cork] Conlee O'CONNEL> Isaac CONLEE>William CONLEE>, Ireland>Halifax VA 1700's, dated 26 Feb 2000.

The post indicates that O'Connell was from County Cork Ireland and Isaac Conlee is a son who married Marry Kennady. It doesn't say where Isaac was born but that at least two of his children were born in Halifax VA. Other postings have Isaac born in Scotland but I find that questioable because others have him living for a time in Glasgow Kentuckey, which, if true, could cause some confusion. A posting in 1999 has Scotland as Isaac's birth place, which I question, but has the next two generation confirmable with the Gillock and Munden families who's women married in to the Conlee family. I can confirm the remainder of that post with my family records.

Unfortunately, I was building a file, using Family Tree Maker, and failed to back up my files properly. The files simply just were not there when I looked for them a week later. The file tied several families together, dating back to the mid 1500's, and it just disappeared. As I get back to work on this line, I may find something in my paper files that I have forgotten and I can give you more information. I'm afraid my memory isn't what it once was.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Marlow, thanks for your message. The earliest reliable record I have seen for Isaac Conlee is his purchase of land in 1783 in Guilford Co NC. This became Rockingham Co by the time Isaac sold that land in 1792. Clues indicate that Isaac lived somewhere in So. VA before coming to NC, but I have not seen any specific record proving that. I would hope someone can find more information.

I would be interested in anything you have on this family, particularly in the earlier years.

To M. Bumpus ... we meet again, eh? You promised to send me a family tree back when you were putting together a Conlee reunion, but I never got it. Since then I have spent a lot of time in Salt Lake City doing research and have a pretty clear line from me back to Conlee O'Connell. I found that many of the references I gave you from my family were off somewhat. However, if you got this far, you must know that too. Like, Levi and Thomas Conlee were the same guy (Levi Thomas Conlee) though he is often also called by his father's name Levi Preston Conlee and he had only one son (Joseph) and one daughter (Rosalie). I was always told he died in the gold rush and never ever saw Rosalie (b. 1848) but I find conflicting death records on him ... 1848 in Placerville and 1855 in California????

there are so many misspellings and conflicting dates and places in this stuff. I have records saying Isaac was born in 1745 in VA, 1753 in NC and 1745 in Glascow????
