Where to begin with the Conner Family? For me I began with Lillian Adeline Conner, my great grandmother. She was the daughter of Joseph Washington Conner and Cynthia Carolina Flynn. I was named after Granny Cynt. I have a copy of the Widow's Application for Pension and a copy of the "Report and Settlement of Estate of Cynthia Conner" filed 09/24/1938 in which all her children are named.
Joseph Washington Conner was born 15th of July 1845 in Bill's Creek, Rutherford County, NC. He is listed in the home of Jackson Conner as a 7 year old in the 1850 census of Bill's Creek. Jackson Conner was born about 1820 and married Adeline Thomson.
