CONLEE, DANIELS posted by John Tucker on Tuesday, January 15, 2002

I am looking for information on Francis Marion CONLEE. He is listed in the 1876 Marriage index for Christian Co. He is listed as marrying Miranna DANIELS. These two are my great grandparents. All I know of them is that they Had my grandfather in1878 in Collin co, TX. and we are told that Miranna died shortly after my grandfather Geroge Francis CONLEE was born. Francis seems to have been a wonderer, because I find him again as marrying a Henrietta DANIELS in Arapaho co, CO in 1878. Perhaps a sister or aunt to Miranna. Then he is listed along with Henrietta in the 1880 cesus for Arapaho co. Again in the 1890 city directory for Denver, CO as a painter. There is also a Mark CONLEE listed as being a barkeeper at the same time. Then Francis is listed in the 1892 voter registration for Chicago, Ill. his place of residence is listed as Penn.
