Dr. Joseph Porter Conway was one of four children born to Dr. Charles W. Conway and Phebe Ann Woodmansee Conway. The father died in 1828, and the next year Phebe married John Driskill, Jr., who became young Joseph's stepfather.

Joseph's full siblings were Sarah Porter Conway Fox, James W. Conway (born 1825; lived in Penn Twp, Highland Co, OH, in 1880), and George W. Conway (born 1827; lived in Illinois in 1880).

History of Ross and Highland Counties, Ohio (Cleveland: Williams Bros., Publishers, 1880), on an unnumbered page following p. 414, lists Dr. Conway's date of birth as July 24, 1823 [rather than the date on the tombstone].


Died at his home, Hard Bargain,
Hamblen Co., East Tenn.

He that overcometh shall inherit all things.
Rev. 21:7
