Feb. 9, 1886 Ben Lomond Sevier County Arkansas, USA
Jul. 4, 1965 Battiest McCurtain County Oklahoma, USA
Andrew "Gus" is the son of Samuel Henry and Leona Elmira Scroggins Conley. He grew up with 5 brothers and 3 sisters. They are to my knowledge:
Martha Emma Conley 1877 – Lavinia Jane Conley 1878 – 1965 John W. Conley 1881 – Robert Lee Conley 1881 – Thomas Jefferson Conley 1886 – Samuel Henry, Jr. Conley 1889 – Grover Cornelius Conley 1892 – 1952 Mary Elizabeth Conley 1892 –
Gus is buried next to his mother Leona. His father is in this cemetery in a different location most likely due to the years between their deaths. Gus was my 1st cousin, 2x removed.
May you rest at peace and know we remember you Gus...
