Melissa or Malissa Straight married Abraham Ice Conaway, son of Samuel and Eleanor Ice Conaway, on 27 FEB 1844, in Fairmont WV (Marion County).

A record of the burial of Melissa and Abraham Conaway's infant daughter Eleanor, who was 1 month old when she died, was also reported in the 1937 WPA reading of the Straight Cemetery. However, this record indicated that baby Eleanor was born and died in 1825, when her mother was 5 years old!

Her date of birth was calculated from the inscription on her grave stone.
