I descend from Thomas Connely who married Margaret Walker. They raised their family in Augusta Co VA. They both died there in 1794. Branches of their family went to KY in the late 1700s & early 1800s (Boone & Montgomery Counties), then to IN (Tippecanoe & Putnam Counties) in the 1830s, then to IL, IA, and other states west & south.
Take a look at the Adobe PDF files (click on the first & second links in the list of "Links to my family files" below) to see if you recognize your line. Please e-mail me to say hello if you know we are cousins or you want me to search my database to see if we are related (I have more recent generations in my database - I'll need the name of your earliest Connely/Connelly/Conley/etc./ ancestor).
Thomas Connely had a brother named Arthur. I'm trying to compile all of the descendants of both Connely brothers. I have some info on over 23K of their descendants but there are still lots of holes. If we connect, please get in touch with me so that we can share family history. Click on "Arthur & Jean (___) Connely" below in Links to my family files (links 3 & 16) if you know or think you know that you descend from this Arthur Connely.
My other genealogical research interests (searching for ancestors & descendants) can be seen by clicking on other lines shown below in Links to my family files.
All of my links are updated periodically, so check back often. Some files are quite large now (in June 2015) and may take 5 or so minutes to upload, so please be patient.
