0 Conaway-Fleming-Gould Family Index

This pages indexes records and pages concerning the lines of Thomas Conaway and Eleriah Aker/Dorothy Fleming, which includes John Spann Conaway & Sarah Fleming/Hannah Randall’s lines through Edmund Macaulay and Lydia Clelland’s family;

The Gould line beginning with George Gould and Lydia Atkins, of Pennsylvania, down through James Aaron Gould and George Washington Gould and their families in West Virginia;

The Clelland line beginning with James Clelland and Ann Pierpoint down through Patrick Clelland to Lydia who married Edmund Conaway mentioned above;

The Fleming line beginning principally with William Fleming and Jane Clark (or Martha N. His first wife), the immigrants, and their children’s lines, especially those of William Fleming and Jane Frame, and Alexander Fleming and Isabel McNitt (McKnith), down through Sarah who married John Spann Conaway mentioned above;

and the Metz, Shalley, Pierpoint, Martin, Randall, Nichols and other related lines from the Eastern coal region of West Virginia, principally Marion County but also Harrison, Monongalia and Tyler counties. Some of the records are in Pennsylvania – in Greene, Fayette, Bedford and Lancaster counties. And of course, the parent Virginia, which includes records from old Augusta county where most of these other counties originally came from. In the very earliest records the Flemings and Conaways of my lines were located in Maryland & Delaware, in Kent, Sussex and Somerset counties.

The West Virginia lines then migrate west into Ohio and Indiana, and finally in modern times all over the country.
