    Notes 
    • Notes from Melissa Conley, November, 2011: NAME CHANGE: It's an interesting story really....Ulyssis was married with 7 children when his wife, Mary Ross passed away in 1905. In 1906 he married Alice (my greatgrandmother) and together they had 5 more children, one being my grandfather, Lewis Conley. Sometime in their marriage for reasons I do not know...Alice changed her name to Laura Conley. This puzzles me and is probably what draws me the most to their history. Being that my grandpa Lewis was next to the youngest and still in the home...his last name was changed too. On Ulyssis' grave it says Connelly. On Laura's it says Conley. This puzzled my Dad too and is what got me started on this research. Laura had 4 kids from a previous marriage so my grandpa had 11 half brothers and sisters and 4 whole. Her name was Alice E. Parker (Parker was from her previous marriage...her maiden name was Smith). I know her as Laura Emma Conley. So I'm thinking that Emma was her middle name from birth and the name change might be a forever mystery to me. My grandpa was Lewis Lonzo Conley. He was next to the youngest of the 16 children.
