Elizabeth Estlack Mullett, a 4th great granddaughter of Thomas Conaway applied for a Bronze Military Marker and with the assistance of her daughter, son-in-law, and grandson erected it on 10 Feb 2013. I am sure that all the descendants of Thomas Conaway join with me to offer Elizabeth our deepest gratitude. Thank you so much Elizabeth.
