CONWAY/CONAWAY..... Loudoun Co. Va
In helping a cousin to trace the wife of her great-grandfather we find this information on her death certificte.
We also have a copy of the Marriage Record for David ADAMS & Elizabeth Jane CONWAY, dated 5 Sep 1848, Springfield, Clark County, OH. We have Census records of this ADAMS family from 1850-1920. She dying in 1911, her husband 1913.
On my Family Home Page, URL below, we have a photo of David Adams and his family following Elizabeth's death. There is also a photo of David as an UGRR operator, with two fellow conductors. And an interview of David by a cohort of Wilbur H. Siebert, the Underground
Our search...Who were the CONWAY/CONAWAY and SUTHERS families? When, how and by whom were they freed? We know the CONWAY/CONAWAY to be FPOC's, residing in Ohio, as early as the 1840's and not "white" as stated on Elizabeth's DC.
Any help and/or clues in this area would be greatly appreciated.
