RICHARD CONNER (CONNOR) (ca.1719-1808)
Born in Maryland; settled as a neighbor of the Indians in 1813. Married Margaret (Bovier) (Bauer)
(d.1913). Seems to have lived with William Tucker. Margaret was captured by Indians at the age of 4.
Conner bought her from them. As a part of the bargain, Conner was to give to the Indians, James, their
first born son, and James was later redeemed by Richard. Their daughter, Susanna, was the first born
white child of English speaking parents born in Macomb County.
Conner's remains were moved to
Clinton Grove Cemetery by a member of the Harrington family after the establishment of the cemetery.
The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Piety Hill Chapter, Birmingham,
Michigan, installed the historic plaque in his honor. The family has the earliest marker (1808) in the
