New information from Patty Dronfield:
Information has just been obtained from the National Archives regarding the parents of this George Patterson Conkin (and his sister Sarah Elmira Conkin). Their parents were Moses Conkin and Anna (surname unknown) who died in 1827 in Washington County, Arkansas. Moses' brother, James P Conkin was appointed guardian of these two children and they lived in Ky. George Patterson Conkin was in the household of James Patterson Conkin (who eventually moves to Missouri) and John C Conkin (also a brother of Moses) has Sarah Elmira in his household in Ky and they remain in Kentucky.
