Virginia Designa Lydia Lavina Sullivan Thomson was adopted at a very young age by Rev.William King Thomson, a Methodist Minister, and his wife. She received a creditable education,particularly in mathematics and music. Family lore has handed down several stories: that she was born in New York or Miss., that her mother was an arthritic invalid and her father died and that she was a relative of John L.Sullivan,the famous boxer. These stories have not been authenticated. At age 17 she married Alexander Hamilton Conoley, son of the Rev.M.C.Conoley,Sr. To this union eleven children were born in the Conoley Community, seven of whom, reached maturity. Jennie had a beautiful alto voice and was one of the leading ladies in her church, choir and community. She was never idle and at the end of day would sit in her favorite rocking chair with her embroidery work. Her Bible was open in her lap from which she read. A devout Christian she read the Bible completely many times during her life and daily practiced its teachings in her home and work. She was buried in the Conoley Cemetery, Conoley Community, Milam County, TX
