CONAWAY, CONNIWAY, CONWAY posted by Patrick C. Conway on Thursday, May 7, 1998

CONWAY/CONNIWAY/CONAWAY I don't know if any of my CONWAYs, other than my uncle, Bryan CONWAY, were ever in Calhoun County but it's as good of a place to search for William Perry CONAWAY, son of Richard CONAWAY/CONNIWAY/CONWAY as any other as all I know for sure is that William was born in AL. I am also trying to research information on my Uncle Bryan CONWAY who was stationed at Camp McClellan in 1922. I have a copious amount of information on the events which occurred there in June of 1922 but I would like to talk with others who may have first or second hand knowledge. Here is the event as I know it: On 6/7/1922, Wednesday afternoon, Sgt Alfred Wood of California was shot and instantly killed by Bryan CONWAY of Leoma, TN. Uncle Bryan was nolle prosequi due to lack of witnesses and evidence during the local trial but, in Nov. 1925, was retried in Federal Court and found guilty of 2d degree murder for which he was sentenced to 18 years in Atlanta Federal Penitentiary. He eventually wound up in Alcatraz. I am researching this not only because he was my uncle but, also for the Alcatraz inmate history at the Park. If anyone has any information beyond what was carried in the newspaper at the time or knows of a witness to the shooting or the descendant of a witness I would love to make contact.

Wills age 32 was found in entries in the 1870 census of Chariton County, MO: TWP Prairie, Post Office Keytesville, Census was taken by B. M. VEATCH on 25 July 1870.

BONDS, CHANDLER, REAVES posted by Keitha Kirk on Saturday, May 30, 1998

I am looking for the parents of Norvel (Nervel) BONDS. He was born 6-18-1835 in GA (according to the 1850 and 1860 census). He married Mary F. REAVES on 8-27-1857. A researcher of the REAVES family has Norvel as the son of William BONDS. I tend to believe this is incorrect because according to the 1860 census there were two Norvel BONDS. My Norvel was 24 and his wife Mary was 20 and they were living with Elizabeth CHANDLER, age either 40 or 70. If 40, it could be the sister to Mary. They also had a 1 year old son, William H(enry), my greatgrandfather. This same Norvel was in the household of P. D. BONDS, Norvel was 14. These ages agree with the birthdate of 1835. Norvell and Mary had 6 children: William Henry, Sallie (or Sarah), Patrick (or Perry) Dudley, Nancy, Mary (or Marida Lizabeth), and Narcissa. (I have additional info on most of the children). According to the 1850 census P.D. was married to Alla and their children were: Lucinda, Kiazu (or Kezzu or Kizzah) female, Norvel, Frances E., Patrick D., and Jackson A. All children were born in GA, P. D. was born in TN and Alla was born in SC. On the 1870 and 1880 census Mary is a widow. Her youngest child, Narcissa, was born 7-26-1870, so that puts Norvel's death after October 1869. He would have only been about 34. Was he in the Civil War? I don't know. Does anyone have any leads that would prove that P. D. was Norvel's father? Any information at all on Norvel would be appreciated. They are all in Calhoun (Benton) Co during these years. Thank you.
