Hi Lili,

Please add the following information to Find A Grave Memorial# 74033830.

Samuel M. Conely

Mr. Conely was born in the city of New York, on the 26th of September, 1806, and early learned the trade of a carver and guilder. His father, Jeremiah Conely, was a seaman, and was born at a place called Snow Hill, in Maryland, about 1766. His mother was born at the East End of Long Island. His ancestors were among those who came to America with the famous Lord Baltimore. Mr. Conely was one of a family of seven children, - three sons and four daughters, - of whom all are deceased except his sister Eleanor and himself. His father died when the son was fifteen years old, and the latter, at the age of sixteen, was apprenticed on Fulton Street, New York City, to learn the trade above spoken of. There he remained until he was twenty-one. On the 12th of March 1828, he was married to Miss Rebecca Southard. For several years thereafter he continued to work at his trade. In 1837 he started, with his wife and four children, for Livingston County, Mich., and after a passage to Buffalo by canal, thence to Detroit by steamer, they purchased a yoke of cattle, a wagon, a cow, and a barrel each of pork and flour, loaded up and drove through to their new home. Mr. Conely purchased one hundred acres of government land, which has since been his home. His children are eight in number, as follows: George W., married and living in Brighton Township; William B., a portrait painter, married and residing in Detroit; Benjamin F., living on a farm of his own in this township; John A., living on his farm in Illinois; Francis M., occupying a farm in Brighton township; Thomas J., on his own farm in Brighton; Henry, deceased; and Mary E., married and living in this township. Henry died at his father's house, Feb. 14, 1873. Mr. Conely has twenty living grandchildren. During three winters after his settlement in Michigan, he returned to New York and worked at his trade to earn money with which to provide for his family. Mrs. Conely was one of nine children, and was born on Long Island, July 5, 1809. Her ancestors were among the first settlers of the island. Both her own and Mr. Conely's mother died in Michigan. The first house built by Mr. Conely is yet standing; but he now occupies a new and more modern structure erected in 1876. In 1878, Mr. and Mrs. Conely celebrated their golden wedding, and at the happy gathering guests were present from Nebraska, Illinois, and Lansing and Detroit, Mich. A large number of presents commemorative of the occasion were received by the aged pair, who for fifty years much more than the average length of man's existence have together buffeted the reverses, and tasted the joys of life.

I noted that you had an exchange with Brenda re: the Wickham gravesites.

I am looking for the gravesite of John F. Wickham, born in Savannah, Ohio. He was, according to what I have been able to find out, a doctor in New London, Ohio, and is supposedly buried in Grove Cemetery.

I did not see him listed when I went to the FindAGrave site for this cemetery.

John is the son of Jeramiah Wickham of Savannah; He was born in 1849 (Savannah)and died in 1914 (New London).

Thank you!

Thank you for your quick response re the headstone photo. Truly a beautiful monument for a 5 year old. Were any other names inscribed on that stone? Just curious...

RE: Vallie Zager
Thank you so much for looking. However, now I can't find the info that I had for her being buried there, (only the info that she died in Oakland, Michigan,).

Thank you again for looking for me,

I created Memorials and uploaded photos and transferred to you all of the Benedicts and others in the Benedict Family Plot at Woodlawn. The names are as follows: Sally, Fred, Mary, Suzan, Harriot, David. Agnes Benedict Wickham and Frank Wickham, Fannie Hottel, Clarissa Benedict Gallup. These are all I could find in the area.

I also made a new Memorial for Platt's wife Sally because the owner of her existing Memorial had the incorrect first name of Sarah. Or I assume it is Sally since that is the name on her stone.

I trust this information will be helpful to you.

Incidentally, I was unaware until now that the Benedicts are related by marriage to the Gallups by Clarissa whom I would guess is Platt and Sally's daughter? Interestingly enough, I'll be on Gallup Ave. in Norwalk tomorrow morning!
