Hmm, Maybe James Is Wrong


A week or so ago, I discovered the names of my great-great grandfather‘s parents. According to a marriage record transcribed by a volunteer, James Conner married Nancy Reed in Delaware County, Ohio in 1841. Therefore, I thought the census man in 1900 Iowa had written down the wrong name. Instead of James, somehow he had mistakenly written John Sr. I was convinced his dad’s name was James. And then I found more corroborating details on Find A Grave. Someone named Jean Greene had submitted information on my great-great grandpa’s sister Caroline Conner’s, sometimes spelled Carolyn and Connor, entry. According to Jean, Caroline’s parents were named Jno Conner, born in Virginia, and Nancy Reed, born in Ohio.
