Alonzo "Lon" Conner & His Wife, Harriet "Hattie" Mullen

Carol Conner Donovan writes,
"Lon was the fifth child born to John Conner & Mary Elizabeth Simpson. Lon and Hattie were married 15 Dec 1898 in Warren Co. Lon was a younger brother to my Grandfather, Owen Conner. They had one child, Harley "Lee" born 23 June 1904. They lived on West Main St. in Lebanon, OH. Lon was an employee of the Oregonia Bridge Co.
Hattie was a Catholic and this did not go over well with the Conners. They called her "Mick" and made her eat in the kitchen for Sunday dinners! Apparently, from Lon's obit, he converted to Catholicism. Wonder how that went over?
Lon died in 1943 & followed by Hattie in 1955. Both are buried in Miami Cemetery, Corwin, OH

"Alonzo is son of my Great Grandfather, John Conner (1829-1908) and brother to my Grandfather, Owen Conner (1874-1949). Lon was born 26 JAN 1873 in Morrow & d. 17 APR 1943 in Springboro, OH. He is buried in Miami Cem,"

Babe and Nelson Conner

Carol Conner Donovan writes,
"Babe Conner (1908-1982) Christened Robert Edward Conner
Babe was brother to my father, Nelson Conner (1907-1973) and the last born child of Owen Conner & Mae Wass. Uncle Babe was always in trouble. He ran off to the Circus twice as a youngster, and ended up in South America with Ringling Brothers. While there he was put in charge of transporting the animals and repairs to the trucks and tents. This is where he learned to be a mechanice...and I say that loosely. I remember as a child, that when Uncle Babe couldn't fix a car, he'd take a sledge hammer to it. When he was finished "blowing off" he'd roll the car down over the hill behind his house & garage on Stokes & Mound St. in Lebanon. Have no idea what his customers did!! We all loved him though. He was quite a character. I also remember he had a Harley Davidson dealership out of one of his barns and would take my sister Shirley and I, for rides in his side car. He also played the bass fiddle for the Lebanon Orchestra, hauling it around in his side car. I miss my wonderfully eccentric Uncle Babe. He is buried in Morrow Cemetery along side his wife, Sally Ryan.

"They are sons of Owen Conner (1874-1949); my paternal Grandfather. They are Grandsons of John Conner (1829-1908) Great Grandsons of Jimmet Conner (1805-1881) & Great, Great Grandsons of Jimmet Conner (1776-1861)."

"The bible inscription reads: "Gr Grand Pa Jimmet Conner" who was the first Jimmet Conner b. 1776-d.1861. It was found in the Bible of Jimmet's Grandson, Andrew Conner (1827-1891). Andrew as the son of Jimmet Conner (1805-1881) my 2nd Great Grandfather and brother to my Great Grandfather John Conner (1829-1908). Andrew's fourth and last born child, Malissa "Lissa" Conner (1864-1924) never married. She inherited her parent's home in Blanchester, OH, & kept the Conner family Bible records. Lissa was also the guardian of her sister's son, Roger Hockman: i.e. Maria Elizabeth Conner (1856-1892) who married Granville Hockman.
LINEAGE: Lissa Conner is the daughter of Andrew Conner (1827-1891), granddaughter of Jimmet (1805) and Great Granddaughter of Jimmet (1776)

Nelson Conner with the football team from his senior year at Lebanon High School, 1925.

Carol Conner Donovan writes,
"Uncle Babe, our father's youngest brother, told me that Daddy was the strongest man he'd ever seen! Uncle Babe said Dad could 'charge' a man, lift him right off his feet, and throw him in the air like a "bag of chips". And this is why Ohio State University recruited Daddy for college football. What a disastrous decision it was for him not to accept that scholarship & go to college"
