Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 20, 1842
Miami County
Ohio, USA
Death: Aug. 9, 1906
California, USA

Lloyd was born in Newton Twp., Miami Co., Ohio to Cornelius Conaway and Anna Pfoutz.

Lloyd was married to Susannah W. Coate in 1875, and they had seven children.

Lloyd served as a private in Co. G, 11th Iowa Infantry during the Civil War. He was wounded in action on July 22, 1864 during the Battle of Atlanta and had to have his left arm amputated.

Lloyd's brother John is also buried in West Branch Cemetery.



Lloyd Conway, one of the most prominent and wealthiest men of Grand River township, fell dead with heart disease in California last week on August 9th.

The body was brought to his home near Macksburg and the funeral occurred Tuesday. Mr. and Mrs. Conway had gone to California nearly a year ago for the benefit of Mrs. Conway's health. Mr. Conway had not been ill at all and his death was a great shock to his hundreds of friends in the county. He had never taken medicine in all his life and his vigor and energy were matters of comment.

He was one of the largest land owners in the county and one of its best stock breeders. He was for several years a county supervisor and made one of the best the county ever had.

The funeral which was held at West Branch church was attended by hundreds. His wife and several children survive him.

Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd N. Conway and family came here in 1869, and also located in section 29. He lost an arm in the Civil War, but it did not deter him in his ambition to make good in his chosen work as a farmer and livestock raiser. He and his wife were intensely interested in the upbuilding and religious influence of the community, and were large contributors to the building of what was known as the West Branch Methodist Episcopal church, donating the land upon which the church was built and the adjoining land where the cemetery is located.
