thank you. when I looked at my Shoebox I actually have that record there. I have a better image of it from FamilySearch and it is spelled "Conley". I wasn't very good about checking Mary's birth year. so doubtful this is her on the same ship. back to the old drawing board I guess. I'm not even sure of Michael's birth year(death record says 1827-other records 1841). lot more work to do. but thanks for the help!
